As of 18 March, the number of COVID-19 cases in the UK has been rising rapidly. Many people with cancer are understandably worried about how the coronavirus might affect them. The most important thing is to follow the advice of your healthcare team.

We have taken guidance from several cancer charities called the ‘One Cancer Voice’ on the most common questions that people affected by cancer are asking about the coronavirus and you can read this information here .

Cancer clinical trials: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, some clinical trials for cancer patients may stop recruiting new patients for now. Your healthcare team will continue to support and monitor you if you are part of a clinical trial. Talk to your team if you have questions or concerns about a trial you are taking part in.

Please follow GOV.UK  and the NHS website  for the latest information about coronavirus, including ways to reduce your risk of catching or spreading the virus.

Topic of Cancer: doing great things locally. Let us help you.

Helping you to cope with cancer

We offer local support groups where members can share experiences, enjoy the company of others, and talk openly with other cancer suffers who truly understand.

With guest speakers to educate, inform and entertain, trips out to theatres and places of interest, it is a chance to have fun and be yourself.

Membership is free, with no booking required, and each group is organised by the local support group leader and members.

Using the immune system against cancer

Topic of Cancer raises funds to help Professor Hardev Pandha and his cancer research team, based in Guildford, fight cancer using the bodies immune system.

Their internationally acclaimed indagation and trials into immunotherapy, using live viruses and other approaches to improve treatments and therapies, have resulted in some ground-breaking advances.
