Bowel Cancer Support Group
Wolverhampton Bowel Cancer Support Group

The Wolverhampton Bowel Cancer Support Group is a self-help group for people with bowel cancer, their families and carers.

We are here for anyone who lives in Wolverhampton or who is receiving their treatment at Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.

The group aims to support you through your diagnosis, your treatment and beyond. We have information talks from external speakers on a range of issues relating to the effects of cancer and there is time to chat with each other and a Colorectal Nurse Specialist.

There is no need to book, just turn up on the day.

For more information on the Wolverhampton Bowel Cancer Support Group please contact a member of the Colorectal and Stoma care Nursing Team and join our Facebook page for up-to-date information on the group activity and support.
