Staff members at UPMC Whitfield Hospital have joined forces to create an education and support network for our staff members and their families who may be affected by cancer.
The team of five, who are from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, recently visited the Solas Cancer Support Centre in Waterford city, which provides free cancer counselling, relaxation therapies and group support services to patients, their families, friends and carers.
The UPMC ‘Solas Champions’ received education in the many services and supports at the Solas Centre. They are now the ‘go to’ for any UPMC staff member in Ireland who would like to visit the Centre and benefit from its supports.
