How We Can Support You

A diagnosis of cancer is one of the greatest challenges anyone can face. Being diagnosed with a rare or uncommon cancer can have additional consequences, not least in terms of awareness, early diagnosis and access to expertise. Feelings of  isolation, fear, uncertainty and anxiety are not uncommon.

NPF exists to address the unmet needs voiced by the neuroendocrine cancer community, to support patients and their loved ones with the physical and psychological burden of Neuroendocrine cancers. We have a number of services to support you including:


Helpline

Our specialist nurse helpline, which is free and confidential – 0800 434 6476 . 

** Please note that we are currently a nursing team member down, so there is a temporary reduction in our service. If you do call and are put through to our voicemail, please leave your name and number and we will call you back. Thank you for sticking with us during this time, we really appreciate your support.

That is more than 13 people a day. For many the first time they will have heard about Neuroendocrine Cancer will be the day they receive their diagnosis. The most powerful stories are those that are real.
