In the past couple of years, HNChelp has attempted to support laryngectomees beyond its original catchment area of North Derbyshire. This follows the closure of groups close to us such as in Mansfield. We have members in both Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
It is a welcome development that a new group is being launched in Lincolnshire this month. Ray Mountain, Chair of HNChelp, and Malcolm Babb, as NALC President, will be attending the first meeting on March 13. HNChelp will aim to provide any support it can to ensure this new group is successful.
