Cancer Connect receives support from the Western Trust

The Western Trust with the support of the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) recently presented £1000 to Cancer Connect, a voluntary group that has recently been established in Fermanagh.

 

Cancer Connect operate from a facility in the centre of Enniskillen and provide a range of information and support services to people with a cancer condition, carers and their families.

 

Mr Brendan Duffy, Locality Services Manager for the Fermanagh area previously visited the facility, along with a representative from the Board’s Local Commissioning Office.

 

Mr Duffy commented: “We were very impressed with the work that Cancer Connect were carrying out and subsequently arranged for the provision of a £1000 grant to be made to the group to support their good work.”

 

He added: “Our local District Nursing Team has been apprised of the resource and patients are being signposted to the services, along with their families, for information and support so they have access to advice when they need it.”
