This video details the precautions put in place at every stage of your possible cancer care journey. This includes: how your GP appointment may have changed, how entering the practice has changed and how your hospital appointments may have changed. It also includes how accessing support organisations has altered since COVID.
This is to help ease any worries and encourage everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to continuing seeking healthcare when it is needed.
