After Treatment - What next?
For many patients and their family members, there is a natural period of adjustment physically, emotionally and practically following a cancer treatment. The uncertainty of ‘what next?’ can be scary and challenging.
For a few people active treatment maybe ongoing, for others hormonal treatments may continue for a number of years.
What happens next and how you will be followed up will be discussed with you.
Completing a holistic needs assessment and discussing this with your Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS)/Cancer Support Worker can help identify the support you need and signpost you to the appropriate services. If you would like to complete one please ask CNS/CSW.
Support is also available through your local cancer support centre, local support groups via the MySunrise App and national organisations such as Macmillan or CRUK. A comprehensive listing of these can be found within the Health and Wellbeing Information and support page and via the Cancer Care Map.
