Patient Support Programmes



If you feel stressed or helpless while coping with cancer, know that there are others who are going through a similar journey. Join our support programme to connect with others. You are welcome to join any of the groups, workshops or talks that we offer every month. Our support groups are co-led by medical social workers, clinical psychologists and patient leaders.

Who can join

We welcome all cancer patients and their caregivers to our events (workshops and talks) and support groups. You do not need to be a NCCS patient to join. They are free of charge unless otherwise stated.

If you are not sure which event or support group is suitable for you, contact us to find out more.
