Cancer Support Programme (CaSP)Social, emotional and practical support to improve the health and well-being of adults affected by cancer
Building on the success of our previous projects, Staffordshire Cancer Advocacy Support Project and North Staffs Cancer Lifestye, we have developed a new Macmillan funded, community based project: CaSP.
The Cancer Support Programme (CaSP) provides one-to-one support for people living with or beyond cancer to explore their needs and identify community services to help them meet their goals.
A service for cancer patients newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment (aged 18+) living in Staffordshire and attending Royal Stoke, County or Cannock Hospitals.
The CaSP provides health and social care staff the opportunity to refer cancer patients for personalised one-to-one support in their community to overcome practical issues and improve their well-being through social and emotional support.
The CaSP service supports patients to:
Ø Self-assess their concerns and feelings (physical, practical, family/relationship, emotional, spiritual/religious, lifestyle or information needs)
Ø Explore and define what is important to them
Ø Identify the local activities and resources they need
Ø Gain support to engage with these services.
For a referral form please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01782 844036.
