As a qualified Oncology skin care specialist the treatments I provide work on relieving the side effects of cancer treatment as well as working on self-esteem and wellbeing.
For many people the side effects of cancer treatment can continue even after their treatment has finished, this can range from months to years. If you are still experiencing side effects such as lymphoedema, scarring, peripheral neuropathy, mild to moderate skin or nail concerns you are not alone and its reassuring to know that they can be addressed by someone who is specially trained.

This consultation is for you to talk openly about any issues you are experiencing and would like addressed.
