NNUH cancer information and support hits the road ahead of World Cancer Day
Our Macmillan Information Managers, who are usually based at NNUH and Cromer and District Hospital, will be going on tour ahead of World Cancer Day.
The team have joined forces with the Cuppa Care bus to provide cancer information and support to locations across the Norwich, South Norfolk and North Norfolk areas.
A new cancer support group for the LGBTQIA+ community will also launch on the day before World Cancer Day.
The Cuppa Care bus is a project that was set up by the Rotary Club of Norwich and is led by Hear for Norfolk.
Ahead of World Cancer Day on Saturday 4 February, our Macmillan Information Managers, Cancer Care Navigator team and Cromer volunteers will start their outreach on Monday 30 January at the Baseline Centre, Knowland Grove, Norwich, from 10am-12pm before going to Future Radio, Woodcock Road, Norwich, between 1pm-3pm.
This will be followed by visits on:

The new cancer support group – Pride through Cancer – is open to any NNUH cancer patient or their family who identify as LGBTQIA+.
