Do you know somebody living with prostate cancer?

Look out for the Prostate Cancer Nurse Service stall at VCHC and St. Cath's next week. The team will be offering advice for people who care for or are living with prostate cancer, explaining why the service was developed, and what the service provides.


The service will also be talking about their holistic needs assessment, how they are performed and why it should be offered to cancer patients and the benefits it produces.


The service supports men living with prostate cancer, during and after treatment to deal with physical, emotional and practical impacts it has on their day-to-day life.


You'll see them at:


St. Catherine's health Centre: Monday 6 July – 10pm-1pm
Victoria Central Health Centre: Thursday 9 July – 10pm – 1pm
