The NET Patient Foundation UK expands community support team
July 19, 2017|
It has been a delight to be able to expand NET Patient Foundation, UK, band of 1 nurse to a band of 2 this summer. A specialist nuclear medicine/NET nurse, Lindsey Devlin has joined our team to help support patients in the community alongside Nikie Jervis. We have around 30 support groups set up in the UK now, and this sort of support suits some, but others find the forum or social media pages more useful, or maybe a chat over the phone or face to face, and for many an email exchange suffices.
We want to ensure that there are as many different forms of support as possible for our patient community, and so are also delighted to welcome 2 psychotherapists to the team. They will be focusing on providing specific psychological support to those who ask for it. We know whether you are newly diagnosed, living with chronic symptoms, uncertainty, misunderstanding, or just feeling low, someone who allows you to talk, without judgement, can help to find a way that works for the individual, to deal with living with a NET. Both are trained and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, with over 20 years experience of working with a wide variety of difficulties and in a number of settings including the NHS, charitable sector and higher education.
