If you're going through a tough time this Christmas, we're here for you. 

Cancer Chat is open 365 days a year for you to receive comfort and support from other members. And your friendly moderator team are on-hand every day, too.

Our Nurse Helpline is open (0808 800 4040) during the following times: 

Friday 22nd Dec: open until 5pm
Christmas Day and Boxing Day: closed
Wednesday 27th Dec: closed
Thursday 28th and Friday 29th Dec: open 9am – 5pm (normal hours)
New Year's Day: closed
Tuesday 2nd Jan: 9am – 5pm (normal opening hours resume)

Other useful contacts:

The Samaritans will be working around the clock - even on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve - if you'd like to talk to someone in complete confidence. Tel: 116 123 (UK). 

NHS 111 is available 365 days a year, too, if you have an urgent healthcare need. Call 999 if it's an emergency. 

On behalf of Moderators Sarah, Jenn, Renata, Steph, Lucie and the whole of the nurse team, I'd like to wish you a peaceful Christmas, and all the very best for 2018.
