PLANETS Support Groups and Patient Information Conferences
We understand that being diagnosed with cancer can be deeply distressing and we appreciate the isolation this can cause. We aim to replace that with a hand of friendship and support, one of PLANETS main focuses is to help patients on their cancer journey.
You may initially feel burdened with information so you should try to discuss all your queries and concerns with your doctor and other members of your healthcare team. There are numerous sources of support and information available to you. As well as all the information on the PLANETS website, you will also find other useful recommended websites listed at the bottom of our home page. PLANETS run Support Groups where patients can meet in person with a healthcare professional and other patients and form friendships and alliances as well as discuss any issues that you are experiencing. This can help to ease any feelings of isolation. We also hold ‘Patient Information Days’ where patients can network and listen to presentations by medical practitioners in their specific field of expertise.
Details of these groups are posted below. Alternatively, you can e-mail us at PLANETS.
