Sometimes it’s easier to put things down in words rather than talk about it. Or you might have questions about cancer you don’t want to ask your doctor. Just send us your questions and we’ll get back to you by the next working day.

Please include as much information as possible so we can answer your questions accurately. Remember, there’s no silly questions about cancer.

Please read our confidentiality statement

Our Support Line “Ask the Nurse” is a confidential service.

The Support Line team use your personal information (such as name and address) for the purposes of dealing with your enquiry. They will not pass on your details to anyone else without your express permission.

However, there are some exceptional circumstances where we may pass on personal information from an individual, including in order to comply with the law or the nurses’ professional code of conduct. For example:

  • We believe a caller is at serious risk of harm, either from themselves or others
  • We suspect a child may be at risk of harm
  • A caller poses a serious risk of harm to others
  • A caller threatens or abuses our staff
  • A caller is deliberately misusing the service which prevents the service from being delivered to others
  • We receive a court order requiring us to divulge information
  • We are passed information relating to an act of terrorism

The Support Line will not store your personal information (unless it is to record that we have disclosed it in one of the exceptional circumstances listed above). Some information is collected during the call but this is stored anonymously in a way that cannot identify a living person.

We’re waiting to hear from you

If you or someone you love has been affected by cancer, our free cancer Support Line is there for you. Just call 0808 808 1010
