Counselling

Oncology Nurses provide pre- and post-treatment psychological support to cancer patients and their family members, both directly and over the telephone.
Videotapes are available on different topics such as:
  • Post-operative care
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy
  • Coping with cancer
  • Dietary advice
A Breast Cancer Patient Support Group has been formed since 2000. These patients meet regularly to share their experience in coping with the new challenge in their life.
Clinical health psychology service is now available to provide psychological support to cancer patients and families. A patients' support group was established in 2009 and met for the first time in 2009, in which Prof. Peter Lee, our Clinical & Health Psychologist, was invited as the guest speaker. The objective of the group is to offer information, advice and support to cancer patients and their carers, to promote patients' morale and mutual emotional support, and to share coping strategies through support group meetings.
