Welcome to our final newsletter of 2020! It has been a privilege to support you all
during this very challenging year and we hope you found our support useful. If you
would like to give us any feedback about our support in 2020, please send an email
to or give us a ring on one of the above numbers.

Our information and support session for people recently diagnosed with cancer
continues monthly, online. The aim is to help you support yourself and know who
can support you, as you start your cancer journey. We have recorded various videos
and put information on our Trust website which can be read and watched at your
own leisure. Please either Google ‘CHFT First Steps’ or follow the link
http The next session will be on Friday 8th January at 10am.

Our service will be slightly reduced over Christmas and we will be closed on
bank holidays. Please leave a message if you need us and we will return your
call as soon as possible. You can also contact the Macmillan Support Line on
