MACMILLAN Cancer Support is offering a new course to people affected by cancer, carers and health professionals in Salisbury.

An information session about the Cancer Support Course, which is accredited by the Open College Network, will be held on Thursday, April 25 from 2pm to 4pm at Sarum College.

Both the information session and the course are free for all participants. The course runs over eight months and is led by both people who have been living with cancer and healthcare professionals.

It results in a qualification equivalent to an NVQ level 2, and is aimed at people with cancer, volunteers interested in supporting those with cancer, and health and social care professionals.

To find out more about the information session or to book a place, call 01904 756 443 or email Stephen Davis
