Head and Neck Cancer Patient and Carer Support Group

The Support Group tries to meet on the first Friday of every month.

Meetings can be social gatherings, or more practical based presentations, but the core activity always remains the opportunity to talk to other patients and carers.

Quite simply, no-body knows what it is like to have and neck cancer better than the patients and carers who have already been through it. So that's why we meet - patients and carers from across the region meeting up to chat, share experiences and support each other.

But we also want to give something back, so our other activities feed into clinical practice development and help fundraise towards support and research.

Why don't you join us?

Just click through on the link below to find out about our next meeting.

Or if you would like to find out more, our chairman is Michael Mcgovern and he is contactable via e-mail at

The Group is a great way to feedback your experiences, shape patient and carer support for the future, and to get involved.
