groups

There are local Patient Support Groups across the UK that can offer help and support locally to patients, carers and family members. Some of these groups are patient support groups, where patients and family members come together to meeting, offer support and often listen to invited speakers on topics such as diet and mesothelioma.  

There are also Asbestos Support Groups which provide a range of services, including benefits advice. Often the Asbestos Support Groups run or host the Patient Support Groups.
