Breast cancer support group

We know how important a support network can be throughout treatment and after it has finished. For this reason we run a support group every other month for our patients. We invite speakers to talk about subjects relevant to you, as well as leaving plenty of time to meet with other patients to chat. For more information about our support group speak to Anne-Marie O'Beirne, chemotherapy sister.
