Winchester 2 Apr 2019 Meeting Summary

Clare Clayton-Lewis Senior BC Nurse gave us lots of interesting information & update about Winchester Hospital Breast Care Unit. Please click here for Winchester Hospital Breast Care Unit Information and Update.

Volunteering Opportunities

Sewing drain bags for patients after surgery. Due to infection control they are for single use only so cannot be reused for other patients. Clare brought in samples & they are slightly shorter than A4 size with fairly long shoulder strap as need to be worn across body.  Please contact breast care nurse on 01962 863 535 & ask for exact size of bag & length of shoulder strap. Andrea has volunteered to make some but they need many more volunteers due to single use.

2. Recovered patients to attend Moving Forward courses run by BCC & Living With & Beyond Cancer & Wellbeing Events run by Macmillan, to serve refreshments & chat to ladies. Dates can be added to our website & Facebook group.
