The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust


Leeds Cancer Support Programme


Are you living with cancer? Would you like to meet others, share and learn?

The Leeds Cancer Support Programme is designed to support those who have been affected by cancer. This could be patients, carers or family members.

The programme consists of six sessions each month between April - September. Each session will cover a different topic relevant to patients and carers affected by cancer.

The 6 topics covered over the six months:

  1. Health & Wellbeing
  2. Carers
  3. Financial Support
  4. Nutrition & Healthy Eating
  5. Current Health Matters
  6. What next...? Looking ahead

You are welcome to start the programme at any stage.

The sessions have been designed  for patients, carers and family members to learn, share experiences and gain support and advice. The first park of each session will feature a guest speaker discussing that month's topic. The second half of the session will give you the opportunity to break into separate patient and carer groups. This enables you to share your stories and learn from each other. To round off the evening, a short group relaxation session will be offered.

The programme is held at the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, St. James's Hospital, on the 2nd Monday of each month between April - September

5.30pm - 7.30pm.

The programme is free of charge and a light buffet is provided.
