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 nurses

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.

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.

Side by Side

We can look after everything. Just ask them to call us on 0808 801 0707 and we’ll take care of the rest.
