At Heart of England we have two urology cancer support groups who meet on a regular basis at Heartlands, Solihull and Good Hope Hospitals.
This gives you and your family the chance to meet people who have also been told they have cancer, and are going through or have completed treatment for their illness.
The Good Hope Support Group is held every last Wednesday of the month in the Education Centre at Good Hope Hospital from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
The Heartlands and Solihull Support group is held on a Wednesday every 2 months in the evening from 4pm to 6pm on alternate sites.
Your clinical nurse specialist will be able to provide you with additional information around this.
