Wessex Bladder Cancer Support
Wessex Bladder Cancer Support is the home of Bladder Cancer Support groups in the Wessex area. On this site you will find help and advice about your diagnosis, the treatments and living with the disease. There are also pages devoted to each support group with details of their meetings, venues and times and forthcoming events.
WessexBCS, together with Urology Consultants from Bristol Urology, Urology CNS's, Stoma teams and The University of the West of England are embarking on a project to produce a series of videos about Bladder Cancer, diagnosis, treatments, follow up and living beyond. We hope these will be launched on YouTube and available in DVD in the autumn.
This web site has been designed and written by Bladder Cancer patients, their partners/carers and the clinicians treating them. It is intended to be an aid to patients to give them a greater understanding of their disease, and to give them support. Any information given in this site is the opinion of its author and NOT the medical profession at large. It is important to remember we, as patients can give support but it is the Doctors who give the medical diagnosis, treatment, treatment advice and prognosis.
The hosting of this web site is sponsored by Action BladderCancerUK.org
