Bottom Lines September 2019
On the 1st of September we welcomed the announcement by the Government of a national cancer agency and a funding boost for Pharmac. Our general manager Rebekah Heal said, “We want to see a cancer agency empowered to make change happen and to deliver for bowel cancer patients. Currently we are seeing a health system struggling to deliver consistent care nationwide, leading to a postcode lottery in where you live affects the timeliness of diagnosis and the quality of the bowel cancer care you receive. This has to change.”
In this newsletter we also announced the launch of our Nurse Support service available by email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our Nurse Support is here to help to explain terminology or concepts, answer questions about treatments and their effects and provide support, information and contacts for other services.
We are also thrilled to confirm that television personalities Jenny-May Clarkson, Nigel Latta and Claire Turnbull have agreed to come onboard as ambassadors for our charity, after their stint earlier in the year supporting our Move your Butt campaign!View newsletter
