Education & support programmes

LBC run a number of education and support programmes. These are designed to give patients and families information that will help them make informed choices about their condition, treatment and lifestyle, as well as the opportunity to meet other people with similar experiences. Each session offers a safe environment where people can come together to share experiences, as well as explore and address their own needs & questions.

If you have any further questions please contact your local Support Services Coordinator here.
