All.Can UK’s 2020 report Placing the psychological wellbeing of people with cancer on equal footing to physical health identified low levels of awareness of the availability of patient support groups among both patients and healthcare professionals. There was also a lack of awareness of the types of support these groups offer.
To overcome this lack of awareness, All.Can UK have been working to bring together evidence of the various mental health and wellbeing support services provided by patient support groups to people with cancer.
This information has now been collated and developed into an infographic, and is available to download from the All.Can UK website here.
All.Can UK have also been working with the Living With and Beyond Cancer (LWBC) team in NHS England to disseminate the infographic throughout the NHS and to the NHS Cancer Alliances.
