We have talked with many of our patients and we know how understandably anxious you are about Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We want to emphasise that your safety is our top priority and the importance of continuing to follow government advice on self-isolation and social distancing.
We know cancer patients, and particularly those on treatment are vulnerable.
While the NHS is under pressure, it is important that you continue to follow the advice of your care teams as best you can, although if you are unclear about this then we have a set of frequently asked questions here.
If these are not clear we have an information hotline that you can call (number to follow) although this is likely to be busy.
As a community caring for those with cancer, you remain our priority and we will continue to keep your best interests at the heart of everything that we do.
Over the coming weeks and months, we will be working even more closely with teams across the NHS to minimise the risk of coronavirus to your health, and provide the best care that we possibly can.
Please note that we have made some changes to the Sussex Cancer Centre which include relocating the waiting room to the Macmillan Horizon Centre – all patients should please report to the Sussex Cancer Centre main reception in the first instance.
