Palliative care webchat, Tuesday 16 April

  • Comments 2

Pamela Rose and Bill Carlin, Cancer Information Nurse Specialists

Palliative care is treatment that is given not to cure cancer, but to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.

Next Tuesday, from 12-1pm, we’ll be holding a live webchat with Pamela Rose and Bill Carlin, specialist nurses from the Macmillan Support Line. If you’d like to know more about what palliative care is, when it is given, and what it entails, Pamela and Bill will be here to answer your questions. 

To take part in the chat, just join us in the chatroom between 12 and 1pm on Tuesday 16 April. 

If you can't make the chat, post your question in the comments below and we'll ask it for you. All the questions and answers will be published here on the Community News Blog after the chat.

You can also speak to a nurse like Pamela or Bill on the free Macmillan Support Line (0808 808 0000, Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm). 

There is some more information that you might find helpful in our website sections on coping with advanced cancer and end of life.
