Pastoral & Spiritual Care
The hospital trust’s multi-faith chaplaincy regularly visit the wards and are always happy to see patients or visitors, to offer a 'listening ear'. They provide religious, spiritual and pastoral care to patients and visitors of all faiths or no faith. Visit the Pastoral & Spiritual Care website for more information.
These resources offer information, advice and tips from other young people to help you cope with the impact of cancer and treatment.
The IAM wheel has been created with young people who’ve been through cancer. It maps out the areas of your life that might be affected by cancer – from diagnosis, through treatment and moving on after cancer.
Using a map can help you think about your needs. You can then choose to share with your TYA team so they can help you get the right support.
