Further advice and resources

The Warblers/Laryngectomy and Head and Neck Cancer Support Group is open to anyone affected by head and neck cancer including carers, spouses, relatives and friends.

 

The meetings take place monthly on every third Friday morning, from 10am to 12pm at Pinderfields Hospital.

 

People newly diagnosed with head and neck cancer and their family and friends are welcome to attend group meetings and meet patients who understand how they are feeling, having been through the same experience themselves. If you feel unsure about attending a group meeting so early in your diagnosis, you may wish for a patient with a similar problem to yourself to contact you by telephone. They will be able to offer support and information about your condition, diagnosis and forthcoming treatment plans.

 

For further information please contact Helen Chadwick, Macmillan Head and Neck Nurse, on 01924 542250 or Lisa Ross, Macmillan Head and Neck Cancer Specialist Sister, on 01924 542556.
