Cancer Connections has continued to provide its full range of services throughout the pandemic, although this has been mainly over the phone.

Now, the team is ready to see more people face-to-face from Monday, May 17 – but they stress anyone coming into the Harton Lane building will need to have pre-arranged an appointment, which can be requested by calling: 0191 4565081.

"It's going to be a bit different in the short term, having people coming in by appointment only,” said Deborah Roberts, co-founder and manager of Cancer Connections.
