Aurora Support Sevice

Aurora is a support service available for oncology patients, led by nurses with a special interest and expertise in oncology. With our experience in this area, together with other professionals at the Oncology Centre, we aim to educate and support oncology patients.

We organise weekly Chemotherapy Classes at the Oncology Centre to provide newly diagnosed patients with the necessary information to understand and manage chemotherapy side-effects. A booklet is also given to all patients attending the class. Accurate information will help you prepare for chemotherapy, prevent and decrease side-effects.

We also organise Beauty Days for all oncology patients. The aim of these Beauty Days is to provide patients with a little personal kindness, warm support and tender pampering. During the Beauty Day, holistic therapists deliver short educational talks about skin care, make-up, nail care, hair care, meditation techniques and aromatherapy. Patients are also offered a beauty treatment according to their preferences along with a Beauty Handbook and cosmetic gifts.

All the services and any educational material are supplied to patients free of charge.
