Health and Wellbeing Events
Each year the Northern Trust holds a lung cancer health and wellbeing event. These are one-off events where patients and their families can get cancer information, support and advice.
They comprise of a series of short talks by expert healthcare professionals about cancer recurrence, the long-term side effects of treatment and self-management, as well as diet and lifestyle advice. They also hear a live story from a patient with a similar diagnosis. Market style stalls are provided by local cancer charities where people are introduced to a range of services that can help them with their physical, emotional, social and financial needs, for example, benefits advice, family support, counseling, complementary therapy etc. People have the chance to talk to the various health and social care professionals directly and also to meet other people affected by cancer and their families.
