Support group for lung cancer launched

31st August 2010

The Chesterfield Royal Hospital is planning to launch a support group in September for people who have lung cancer.

Sheree Hall, the trust’s specialist lung cancer nurse practitioner, said they had decided to set up the group in order to offer "much needed" help for people in the area who had lung cancer. Ms Hall said: "People want to understand what is happening to them and research shows that this type of help can reduce the distress that patients and their families suffer."
