Welcome to Norfolk & Waveney Prostate Cancer Support Group
To improve AWARENESS of prostate cancer among men at risk.
To provide the essential INFORMATION on all aspects of the disease and its effects, and to help in improving diagnostic/treatment procedures within the Norfolk & Waveney areas
To give an opportunity for both patients and carers to SUPPORT each other, so meeting a need, not always fully provided by the medical profession and other agencies.
The Group is run, entirely by volunteers and is totally self-financing, relying on public donations and its own fundraising activities. We offer, at a local level, the opportunity to receive support and meet others who are affected by prostate cancer. In this way we aim to provide a service to complement any medical treatment which you might have to receive.
We hold four OPEN MEETINGS each year, which are held regularly, on a Monday at the Benjamin Gooch Theatre, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, (7.00pm till 9.00pm), with attendance, car parking and refreshments being free. These meetings, usually with a speaker, offer an opportunity to meet others with prostate cancer and to find out how we might help you.
Four-times-a-year ‘Meet & Chat’ events, are held at the Big C Centre, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, (7.00pm till 9.00pm). We also have similar events, three-times-a-year, at the Louise Hamilton Centre, James Paget Hospital, Gorleston, which are on a Saturday (11.45am -1.15pm)
At these events, held in a relaxed, friendly environment, prostate patients, family members and friends can meet and chat with fellow patients and share their feelings and the treatments they have undergone, on their mutual cancer journey.
