Information for Patients
We understand you may have lots of questions surrounding lung cancer and coronavirus (COVID-19) and now, more than ever, we are here for people living with lung cancer in these very uncertain times.
We are making sure people affected by lung cancer, including carers, have access to the latest news updates and advice for those with cancer, as well as information about treatments and how to reduce their risk.
Our Ask the Nurse service is still running, as is our lung cancer forum where you can speak to other people affected by lung cancer. We’ve had to pause our information days and support groups but we are looking at ways in which we can offer these services online and/or by telephone.
It’s a very anxious time for everyone but we are determined to do all we can to support people with lung cancer through it.
