Claire and Anita are available to support women and their families when a gynaecological cancer is suspected or diagnosed.

We also provide written information to help explain the treatment you are receiving.
A number of different people are involved in these treatments, Claire Anita and Lesley act as the link between all these people and can also put you in contact with other sources of help and support.
