                 HOW  CAN  WE  HELP ?

 

Within the framework of the Fountain Centre, patients using non conventional  anticancer therapies  have access to medical services, (including oncology and palliative care services) counselling  and  other psychosocial support as  they  require. This service is of course also available for patients using conventional anticancer therapies 

 

This service is based on the realisation that cancer patients: 

 

bullet

need complete access to  information about their diagnosis that is free from "Medical Jargon"                                                                 

bullet

need sensitive, open and honest communication to enable them to make informed decisions concerning treatment options   

 

bullet

cancer patients need to be treated with respect dignity regardless of what treatment they are undertaking

 

 

A drop in service is available and patients (and or their relatives) are able to have access to medical and psychosocial services as they require.  

 

Our email advice and support service is available for those who are unable to get to the centre but most importantly our internet based service provides instant access to information not just from our centre but also from the many sites and organisations that we link and network with. 

Through this network, information about treatments and patient referrals / records (subject to the usual internet safeguards)  can be exchanged efficiently and rapidly throughout the country (or any where in the world) as necessary.  

Facilities for video conferencing between practitioners and patients also exist.

A telephone help line is also be available from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM for patients and their carers  

An outpatient clinic based on an appointment system is available for patients who require a more formal evaluation and for those attending from distant  places.
