Support Group

UCAN support group, is patient-led and hosted by fellow patients; it’s your agenda, your chance to speak, listen, learn, exchange ideas, share experiences, laugh or cry and help support others who are affected in some way by urological cancer.

Come every month or come once in a while. It’s your choice.

Bring a family member, partner, carer or friend or come on your own; a very warm welcome is always guaranteed.

UCAN Support Group get togethers take place on the third Tuesday of every month from 7pm at CLAN House, Westburn Road, Aberdeen. map

The committee have been working since October 2011 to create a support group for Urological Cancer Patients, partners, families and carers. The key element is “patient led”, the committee exist to facilitate what the group decide regarding direction or possible speakers. In using CLAN House as a base for meetings we have been able to make use of a relaxed atmosphere, conducive for sharing experiences, having a laugh and supporting each other.
