Support for your patients
With your help, we can ensure everyone with pancreatic cancer knows our services are here when they need it most.
The additional support we can offer to people with pancreatic cancer can be a lifeline. Sadly, because diagnosis often happens late and survival rates are low, many people don’t come across our services until it’s too late.
With your help, we can change that and ensure everyone knows about our services as soon as they are diagnosed. Our extra resources combined with your professional dedication means together we can improve the experience of people with pancreatic cancer.
Our specialist nurses are experts in pancreatic cancer and are only a phone call away. They can provide additional support to your patients and their families; answering their questions, following up with personalised information and providing reassurance for as long as they need it. We can also support you with any specific questions you might have around caring for someone with pancreatic cancer – feel free to pick up the phone to us when you need to. You can also read more about our team of nurses here.
Our pancreatic cancer information
Our information will give your patients the knowledge they need to make informed choices. It’s easy to understand, reviewed by clinical experts and covers all aspects of pancreatic cancer so you can share it with full confidence. Our Newly Diagnosed pack is ideal for patients wanting comprehensive information. Or our booklets for people recently diagnosed cover the key facts. Our easy read booklets are also available for people who struggle with written information.
Living with Pancreatic Cancer online support sessions
If you think your patients would benefit from connecting with other people with pancreatic cancer, our Living with Pancreatic Cancer Online Support Sessions can be hugely beneficial to their emotional wellbeing. Hosted by our specialist nurses through Zoom, they can easily log in, speak to others with similar experiences, listen to talks and ask questions.
Side by Side: Support for before and after surgery
If your patients are going to have, or have had, pancreatic cancer surgery, our Side by Side service can connect them by phone with trained volunteers who have already been through it. We know many people feel apprehensive about surgery and we’ve found just one call can hugely alleviate their anxieties and help them to emotionally and practically prepare.
