Keep in Touch Support Service
Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation supports people affected by lung cancer across the UK. Our Keep in Touch Support Service started as a way of offering support to those with lung cancer shielding as a result of covid-19. The service has been valued by patients and carers who are isolated, adjusting to diagnosis and treatment impact and would like regular contact with Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. This service now forms part of our ongoing information and support for people.
We live on a farm (I know we are very lucky) and have been isolating for nearly three weeks now and the only person we see is our son when he brings us food parcels and drops them off at the gate! Phone is a lifeline and it would be lovely to hear from the team at Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation anytime.
What is the service?
Our Keep in Touch Service is an opportunity to receive regular one to one phone support, for those with a lung cancer diagnosis and those caring for someone with a diagnosis.
Having lung cancer can present significant psychological as well as physical challenges, we are here to help you meet those challenges in the best way you can. Having a private, safe, independent and confidential space to speak to a member of our team on a regular basis can help support you in navigating your experience.
We will arrange to give you a call at a suitable, agreed time. Calls are fortnightly, and we are currently able to offer 12 sessions.
If you need clinical or practical support you would be put in touch with other services, with your permission.
The service is free, confidential and will be led by staff who work for the charity.
