Patient Support Groups


In Cornwall we are fortunate to have several wonderful and active Patient Support Groups that are able to provide and share information, friendship and comfort to women both before during and after breast treatment.

Many women find it very helpful to be able to meet with others that have been affected by breast cancer and shared similar experiences.

Buddy System

Many of my patients are also happy to meet with newly diagnosed or prospective patients in what we affectionately call our 'Buddy System.'
Some women find this very helpful when they are coming to terms with their diagnosis and researching which surgical strategy is the right one for them.
The Breast Care Nurses will be able to help suggest a suitable "Buddy" and help make the necessary introductions if needed.
