Bladder Cancer Support Group Meetings – 2017

Within the Sunderland Urology Department, we have set up a bladder cancer support group for our patients – the catchment area of which includes Sunderland, Durham and South Tyneside. Within these areas we diagnose and treat a large number of patients with bladder cancer and the aim of this group is to offer ongoing support in an open, sensitive and safe environment.

The group is to both patients, and their families, who are newly diagnosed or are undergoing current treatments or surveillance programmes. The group will be meeting on the dates listed below throughout 2017 in the Education Centre at Sunderland Royal Hospital from 5 to 7 pm.

  • 5 April 2017
  • 14 June 2017
  • 13 September 2017 

At this forum patients and their families have the opportunity to chat and discuss any concerns or questions you may have regarding your diagnosis or treatment.

There is no need to book. If you have a diagnosis of bladder cancer and feel the opportunity to chat to someone would be helpful, do please come along. Refreshments will be provided.

For further information about the group, please contact: Sandra Hargreaves (
