About the organisation

The group has regular meetings with talks on relevant issues, such as diet and nutrition. There is the opportunity to meet others who have been through a similar experience or to be matched with a ‘buddy’ i.e. a specific group member to talk to. Also, one-off social events are arranged. Details of the meetings and social events are published in a quarterly newsletter that is automatically sent to all Head and Neck patients in the area. The group meets at St Richards Hospice, Wildwood Way, Worcester, WR5 2QT and The Kindle Centre, ASDA, Belmont Rd, Hereford, HR2 7JE.
