If you cannot come to us, we can come to visit you. Please ask about our home visiting service if you are very ill or have a disability which makes it hard for you to come to us.
We can also accompany you to hospital appointments if you are vulnerable and have no family, carers or friends to help explain what is going on.
HOME AND HOSPITAL VISITS
Most of our services are currently free to patients and carers who live in the London Borough of Newham.
We will have to ask those who live out of borough if they can make a donation for services at the moment due to lack of funding. We hope to remedy this situation in the future.
We carry cancer information from Macmillan and other cancer charities, and info on NHS screening programmes and support services. We are available for outreach and education around cancer awareness and healthy living, anywhere around the borough at request.
INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
We support patients and carers who are having difficulties around various issues which make it hard to cope with their treatment and recovery.
We can help with advice, form filling, explaining letters etc, advocating for you with agencies such as DWP, housing, social care etc. or refer you to others who can help.
