PROSTaid Support Groups in Leicestershire & Northamptonshire

PROSTaid monthly support groups in Leicestershire & Northamptonshire are run by volunteers who themselves have experienced prostate cancer and want to help, patients. Together with our wives and partners, we come to help local men and their families who are going through the same treatment journeys.

Our PROSTaid prostate cancer nurses also come along to the groups & give their help, advice, and support

As well as local consultants and oncologists and medical experts and specialist nurses involved in the care of men with prostate cancer.
