Support

Support and meet other people

As with all of our support groups, this service is totally free of charge. The aim of the meetings is to support each other, as in real life, it’s a patient led support group, so you tell us what you need and we’ll be there to help you for as long as you need.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet other people from across the region who are going through, or have gone through the same procedures as you.

Our support is open to patients, family and friends. Anyone who wants to gain knowledge and access our support is very welcome.
