Coronavirus update: Dimbleby cancer care service

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily close all our support services at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup. We are still running services at Guy's Hospital and accepting referrals for information and advice, psychological support and benefits advice. The complementary therapy service are currently able to accept new referrals for one-to-one outpatient video consultation complementary therapy self-care sessions, the aroma stick service and daily live online relaxation sessions only.

A drop-in information service is still available for patients attending for treatment and the information nurses are also providing a telephone service. Our psychological support, and welfare and benefits services are still running and accepting referrals. These appointments are being delivered over the telephone or a video call where possible.

I went to Dimbleby for some counselling. It just felt nice to have some time for me when I could concentrate on talking about me and how I was feeling.
