Helpline – Talk to our nurses
When bowel cancer hits, it can be hard to know where to turn and that’s why we run the UK’s only nurse-led specialist helpline for bowel cancer, which patients call a ‘lifeline’.
Our nurse advisors are on hand to offer support and answer your questions and concerns. Whatever your situation, our nurses will always listen and be supportive.
If you are worried about any aspect of the disease – if you have symptoms and don’t know what to do, if you have just been diagnosed, or have questions about treatment options or living with the physical effects of bowel cancer – then please call our confidential helpline.
