Wessex Bladder Cancer Support
LOCAL PATIENT/CARER SUPPORT GROUPS.
There are several local support groups often attached to a hospital and supported by the Urology staff. All the groups are open to anyone who has had a Bladder Cancer diagnosis, irrespective of where they are on their treatment journey. The groups also welcome partners, carers, an friends of the patient. They are usually either free or rely on a small donation each meeting to cover basic costs.
