New service to support radiotherapy patients

afterglowThe Poole Hospital radiotherapy support team has launched a new patient group called Afterglow, for patients who have recently finished their radiotherapy treatment.

The group meets on a monthly basis and provides support, information, and advice from professionals to those who have finished their radiotherapy treatment and also for their family and friends.

Afterglow will bridge the gap between the end of treatment and follow up and will allow patients to meet others who have had similar experiences. The group has been set up with the intention of tackling long term issues of cancer treatment including physical, psychological or spiritual needs.

Meetings are on the second Monday of each month, from 2-4pm at The Grove Hotel in East Cliff. Contact the project leads, Mandy Sydenham or Katherine Spinks on 01202 448174 for more information or to sign post patients to the group.
