The main role of the Guernsey Society for Cancer Relief is to provide assistance to cancer sufferers and their families when the extra financial burdens are beyond the capabilities of the family.
We can offer assistance for home nursing and help, travel and accommodation expenses for UK treatment, telephone and heating costs etc.
We can also provide companions for patients travelling to appointments in the UK.
We do not ‘Means Test’ which enables us to react very quickly to requests and it allows us to reach more people who are genuinely in need of our help.
Most requests are received through Palliative Care nurses and our Social Worker who are part of the new Bulstrode Oncology Unit and the Oncology nurses who deliver almost all of the chemotherapy treatments in the island. Direct approaches from patients are also received.
