Our confidential nurse support service is available by email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An experienced registered nurse will be able to answer questions about the effects of various treatments, explain bowel cancer terminology, and provide support, information and contacts for other services.
Please note: this service is for non-urgent enquiries: it’s not a medical advice service and shouldn’t be used for diagnosis or treatment without further consultation with your GP and/or health team. If you or a member of your whānau are feeling unwell, please contact your GP, free call Healthline on 0800 611 116 or in an emergency, call 111.
If you have a query, please check our About Bowel Cancer or Support sections first, where you’ll find information about all aspects of bowel cancer, including resources, recipes, a service directory and personal stories of other Kiwis affected by bowel cancer.
