Patient support

We're by your side every step of the way – from symptoms to survivorship. We believe care should be focused on you, the individual, not the condition.

Here for you

At GenesisCare, we understand that cancer is life-changing. Our commitment is to help you meet the physical, emotional and psychological challenges in the most positive way possible.

The resources below will help you to navigate our cancer care and support services. These include sharing the experiences of patients who have been cared for by us and signposting to other helpful organisations offering additional support.

Nutrition support

Managing side effects

Your care team will support you throughout your cancer journey by helping you to control and manage any side effects of treatment. You may only experience mild side effects, which can be easily treated with prescribed medicines. Other side effects can be more difficult, but we’ll help you limit their impact on your daily life.

Our consultants, nursing teams and pharmacists work together to provide practical advice, lifestyle tips and nutritional advice. We also offer new technologies and treatment techniques that can help reduce side effects, for example, cooling caps which can be worn during chemotherapy treatment to reduce hair loss.
