More information about gynaecological cancers, treatment and support:
Our support group is run by nurse specialists and the Dimbleby Cancer Care psychology team.
This is open to you during any stage of your treatment.
The support group is held in the Welcome Village at the Cancer Centre at Guy's on the first Tuesday of each month from 1.30pm to 3pm.
Please speak to your nurse specialist for more information.
Our team work together to make decisions about your care. We have a weekly meeting called the multidisciplinary meeting to decide the best treatment plan for you.
Who your consultant is depends on the treatment you receive. This means your consultant may change if you go on to receive a different type of treatment.
If you're ever unsure about who is in charge of your care, please speak to your nurse specialist.
