CancerLine

 

Established in 2001, Cancerline is a free, anonymous, confidential information and counselling service on cancer related issues managed by our trained Oncology Nurses. It is catered to diagnosed cancer patients, their caregivers, general public and health care professionals.


Our Services


The aim of CancerLine is to:

  • To provide telephone triage on cancer symptoms and treatment-related side effects
  • To offer a listening ear for cancer patients and their caregivers
  • To provide information on cancer-related issues
  • To facilitate referral for community support services and resources

How Patients Can Benefit

 

CancerLine provides patients with an avenue to gain knowledge about cancer, how to manage it and the various treatment options available. It will also help empower patients' symptom mangement skills during treatment.

 

In addition, patients will be able to gain support through links with local community services as well as get emotional support to reduce their anxiety level and increase their self-esteem.
