The Irish Cancer Society Support Line is a supportive information service staffed by experienced cancer nurses where anyone concerned about cancer can get trusted information and advice about any type of cancer.
Call us on Freephone 1800 200 700
We know that getting a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. The information we provide helps make sense of what’s said in doctor’s appointments, making patients feel more informed and in control of their treatment decision.
The service is available across the country, to anyone who needs it. Nurses are here to support cancer patients, their worried family members, or anyone seeking information about the signs and symptoms of cancer, or how to reduce their risk of the disease.
When not answering the many calls we receive, nurses are responding to enquiries online, as well as making sure the information we provide to the public in other ways, like our publications and on our website, are accurate and up to date.
If the phone lines are busy, callers can leave a message and a Cancer Nurse will call back as soon as possible.
Call our Support Line Freephone on 1 800 200 700 for confidential advice, support and information on any cancer issue. The Support Line is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
“The person I spoke to treated me as an adult and gave an honest answer to my questions. I have a diagnosis. All I wanted was information in a manner that I can understand. The cancer nurse was the first person to do that. Thank you.”
You can also speak to a Cancer Nurse in any of our Daffodil Centres located in hospitals across Ireland.
All our nurses attend regular training to ensure information provided is accurate and that they are aware of the latest developments in cancer care. The service is regularly evaluated to ensure a high standard of service is delivered.
The Irish Cancer Society is now using the Sign Language Interpreting Service (SLIS) on its Cancer Support Line 1800 200 700 to provide free cancer information and support to members of the deaf community who may be concerned about cancer.
If you or someone close to you have been affected by cancer we offer a listening ear. We can also offer guidance and help you find the right information and support in your area.
