A range of support to suit you

If you are diagnosed with bowel cancer there is no right or wrong way to feel, but there is lots of support available to you throughout your diagnosis, treatment and beyond.

You might require support with the emotional impact of your diagnosis, or support with the physical impacts of treatment, either during your treatment or with the longer-term effects that it can cause. 

At HCA Healthcare UK we have a team of cancer experts who can provide you with the support that is right for you, including help with diet, physical therapy or emotional support. They’ll work with you to put a plan in place that suits your individual needs.

For me, The Wellbeing Space filled something of avoid in the immediate aftermath of my treatment finishing and was perfectly timed.

What is it like after treatment for bowel cancer?

Everyone has their own unique experience of cancer but you may find that after treatment you need some time and support to recover. During active treatment there is an intense focus on the treatment itself and a routine of regular hospital visits, it can take some time to readjust and process your emotions.

After treatment, your focus may shift to living a healthy lifestyle and regaining some sense of normality, and that may mean finding a new norm for you. At HCA Healthcare UK, our team of Clinical Nurse Specialists, clinical psychologists, dietitians, physiotherapists and other cancer specialists are available to support you in any way that they can, for as long as you need. They’ll work with you to develop a care plan that fits your personal needs, so that you can get the support that’s right for you at the time that is right for you. Remember, everyone is different and we’re here to support you as an individual.

Looking for a second opinion?

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, whether or not you have started treatment, a second opinion can give you reassurance and peace of mind.  

Our second opinion service is led by expert consultants. They will provide a comprehensive review of your current and past medical history, to identify the best treatment options for you. This review may identify new treatment options or simply confirm that you are already receiving the best treatment. Either way, it can help you make an informed decision about what is best for you.
