BETSI Cadwaladr University Health Board and Macmillan Cancer Support have come together to address the challenges faced by people fighting cancer. 

Patients - and those affected by cancer - are being invited to attend a new series of free sessions which will offer advice on a range of issues associated with cancer treatment.

The first event will take place at The Beaches Hotel, Prestatyn, next Wednesday (April 26) from 10am until 1pm. The sessions are open to anybody affected by cancer, including patients and their families. Registration opens at 9.30am, and attendees are welcome to stay for as many sessions as they’d prefer. 

Information on diet and lifestyle choices, the possible long-term effects of treatment, fatigue management and emotional support, and access to local community support services will be covered in the sessions. Advice and guidance on welfare benefits will also be available.

Hannah Hughes, Macmillan Health & Wellbeing Project Lead for North Wales, said: “The events will offer attendees a great opportunity to speak to professionals and other people who may have had a similar experience.

“Anybody affected by cancer is welcome to attend, and can bring a friend or family member along for support if they wish. The sessions are friendly, informal and really welcoming, and we hope they’ll help provide valuable additional information to that already provided by the Health Board.”

To book a place, or for more information, telephone 01745 445214 or email BCU.healthandwellbeing@wales.nhs.uk
