We’re sorry to read about the situation that yourself and your partner
While some people may choose to attend medical appointments alone. This decision
can be difficult for those who would prefer to attend appointments with their
loved one as a means of support to that person. Have you tried to talk to each other
about how you’re both feeling?
Our Support Line is here to offer information and emotional support to
anyone affected by a terminal illness and if you or your partner would like to
talk about anything, you can reach us on Freephone 0800 090 2309.
We also have a new service on our Support Line where you can discuss any
medical related questions with one of our Information and Support Nurses. While
they are unable to offer medical advice, they can provide clinical information
and support. Our nurses are available between the hours of 10am and 4pm Monday
to Friday and if you feel this would be helpful you can access this service by
calling our general Support Line number that I have shared above.
