Information days

Coronavirus Update

We are postponing all our Information Days until further notice. We have taken this decision in light of government advice that people affected by lung cancer should avoid social contact which may increase their risk of corona virus. Our Information Day programme is run in conjunction with local NHS lung cancer teams who are currently focusing on NHS care services. We are looking at whether we can provide additional phone and online groups, please monitor the website for further information. Our Ask the Nurse service is available via lungcancerhelp@roycastle.org or by calling 0800 358 7200.

We are proud to host lung cancer information days across the UK, offering support and information to anyone affected by lung cancer.

lung cancer information days

These free to attend information days provide patients and their families with the opportunity to hear from lung cancer professionals such as oncologists, thoracic surgeons and lung cancer nurses. You will also have the chance to ask questions as well as share your experiences with other lung cancer patients and carers.

“Lung cancer information days offer more time for people to get much more information, not just from one specialist but from numerous specialists that may be involved in their care.”

Martin Chamberlain, Chest Surgeon Southampton

Each lung cancer information day features local medical practitioners, presenting the very latest updates on lung cancer treatments. We also invite other professionals such as physiotherapists and nutritionists who can provide details on how best to live with lung cancer. Patient advocates also regularly attend to share their story and explaining how lung cancer has affected their lives.

“It’s very helpful meeting other people who are suffering from a similar disease but possibly being treated differently, how they manage and what things they find help them enjoy life. The opportunity to share is very important. We don’t talk about lung cancer enough.”

Peter, living with lung cancer
