Cancer support programme

The Cancer Support Programme (CaSP) provides one-to-one support for people living with or beyond cancer to explore their needs and identify community services to help them meet their goals.

A service for cancer patients newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment (aged 18+) living in Staffordshire and attending Royal Stoke, County or Cannock Hospitals. 


The CaSP provides health and social care staff the opportunity to refer cancer patients for personalised one-to-one support in their community to overcome practical issues and improve their well-being through social and emotional support.


 The CaSP service supports patients to:
Ø    Self-assess their concerns and feelings (physical, practical, family/relationship, emotional, spiritual/religious, lifestyle or information needs)
Ø    Explore and define what is important to them 
Ø    Identify the local activities and resources they need
Ø    Gain support to engage with these services.

The Programme will be officially launched in the New Year but we are continuing to take referrals through a single referral to the CaSP team by completing the CaSP Referral Form and faxed to 01782 746940 or email macmillan@bjf.org.uk or telephone 01782 844036.

More information available from Kath Curley, Programme Manager, on 01782 844036 or kath.curley@bjf.org.uk
