FORCE is in Okehampton every Wednesday to offer support for anyone affected by cancer.

We are at Okehampton Hospital between 10am and 4pm, providing support closer to home for people in West Devon.

It is available to anyone at any stage of a cancer diagnosis and to their relatives or friends.

You don’t need a referral which means you can simply call in and find out more about us. All our services are funded by our charity so there is no charge to you.

A cancer diagnosis may mean having to deal with a lot of questions, worries and uncertainty.

Advice and support is available through our Support Services Team in Okehampton. Written information and booklets on specific cancer treatment or self-help guides are available along with signposting to other services, such as benefits advice or help for carers.

Counselling is available in Okehampton but sessions need to be booked in advance.

FORCE Oncology Support Specialists are trained counsellors who, as well as offering support, can also give more time and in-depth help in the form of counselling.

Counselling offers a safe place where you can speak about feelings that may worry or frighten you. It gives time and privacy to talk about how cancer has affected your life.

Complementary therapies are also available from qualified practitioners, some of whom are volunteers. All our therapies work alongside any medical treatment to help promote relaxation and improve emotional and physical wellbeing.

All therapies need to be booked in advance by contacting Carol on 01392 402086

FORCE also funds the delivery of chemotherapy at Okehampton Hospital. A team of nurses from the Cherrybrook chemotherapy unit at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital administer treatment to patients, saving them the journey to Exeter.

Not all patients are eligible for treatment at Okehampton. Please speak to your consultant or cancer nurse specialist for more information.
