What we do
You will be seen by one of our assessors, who will listen to your story and together you will make plan of care based on your concerns and needs.
We will offer you a choice from our range of services, see our A-Z therapies for more information. We also know that young people have very different needs. To support them we have designed a special children and young peoples service for people up to the age of 18.
Anyone affected by the impact of cancer, can access our free of charge packages of support by simply calling us on 0114 278 4600. We are a self referral service so you do not need to be referred by a healthcare professional.
Upon contacting the Centre, we will offer an appointment for an initial assessment within a week. Up to an hour will be spent talking to one of our assessors, who will listen to your concerns and help you sort out your thoughts and decide how we can best support you. Together, you then choose an appropriate therapy which will be organised for you before you leave. After completing an agreed number of therapy sessions, the assessor will meet you again to check on your progress and review your treatment here. You will then be discharged from the care of Cavendish Cancer Care.
Our service is completely confidential, but as we are part of your overall care, it is usually in your own interests that our assessor writes to your other doctors and nurses. However, we will not contact anyone without your permission.
