We are extending our Support Line service to offer video calls for those who want a face to face chat with one of our experienced Cancer Nurses.

From the comfort of your own home you can meet online with a Cancer Nurse and receive confidential advice, support and information on any aspect of cancer including practical and emotional supports.

Our Cancer Nurses are available on Wednesdays to take video calls on the Microsoft Teams Platform. To avail of the service we ask that you pre book using the form below. One of our nursing team will then contact you by email with the time for your video call. Full instructions on how to use Microsoft Teams on your device will be provided in this email.

  • Maximum of 3 attendees per call.
  • We can video call with ROI residents only. This is due to the differences in health services between countries.
