Closed petition Counsellors on wards where 16 to 25-year-olds are receiving cancer treatment

Counsellors should be available for young people receiving cancer treatment. When I was diagnosed with cancer, it was a complete shock for me and my family. I found it harder to deal with mentally than the actual treatment itself.

More details

Despite being treated on a specialist adolescent unit for 16 to 25-year-olds, no counsellor is available for people in this age group. I and others would benefit from a counsellor being on wards and instantly available. The counsellor could then deal with any worries as they arise, and people would not need to wait for appointments in the community.
