Staying Connected

Supporting the Ovarian Cancer community through the COVID-19 period

Staying Connected 

Our Staying Connected service offers you regular email updates, and informative videos, interviews, and interactive video sessions where you can speak to experts directly and ask them your questions. The service will be really easy to use and we’ll have staff at the ready to help anyone with questions. 

We appreciate that many members of our community will be staying at home to protect the health and safety of both themselves and those around them. Working together, we feel that is our responsibility to ensure that there are ways for the ovarian cancer community to stay in touch and continue to empower themselves with information about how they can support their personal health and wellbeing.

If you’d like us to keep you up to date with this advice, information from clinicians and tips on wellbeing during this difficult time please sign up to our patient newsletter here.
