This service provides a consistent, targeted and holistic advice service for people affected by cancer who are resident in or being treated in Hampshire, including Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
A team of caseworkers and support workers provide specialist advice and casework face-to-face, through a telephone helpline and via email/letters.
In the last year we had an increase of 20% in the number of clients helped and secured financial gains for clients of almost £7.5m.Results from our survey of professional medical staff evidenced that our Service is a vital link between nurses and patients with an average of 2.5 hours per patient saved in time by professional staff.
The largest proportion of clients first contact us through our telephone helpline but a large number also see us for the first time at hospitals, hospices or other outreaches.
Core funding is provided by Macmillan Cancer Support. In addition, last year we received funding from Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity, The Ark Cancer Centre Charity for Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust, Oakhaven Hospice Trust, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Rowans Hospice and Southampton Hospital Charity.
