Psycho-oncology

The psycho-oncology service is part of the broader cancer service and deals with psychological reactions to the experience of cancer, and the behavioural component of coping with cancer.

This service also focuses on the health behaviour change, including preventive medicine, and social factors that are associated with diagnosis and treatment of cancer, including communication with providers and loved ones and social support.

The team works with people across the cancer trajectory, including at diagnosis, during treatment, transitioning to and throughout survivorship, and approaching the end-of-life.

Referrals to the Psychology for Cancer Service can be made via your health care professional, hospital consultant or Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS). We unfortunately cannot accept self-referrals from new patients.
