The head and neck cancer support group, started by the Nurse Specialists, Sharon and Mary, at Chesterfield Royal has closed.
HNChelp has supported this group from its formation, with many of our members joining the new group. However staff changes and the reconfiguration of head and neck services locally have had an adverse impact and the group is no longer viable.
We will be working hard to fill the gap. Though the long-term needs of laryngectomees are different from other head and neck patients, a single support group for all is the ideal we must aim for.
