Support with a recent diagnosis
We've partnered with GoodCourse to develop a mobile phone text based support programme for people who have recently been diagnosed with bowel cancer.
We know that being diagnosed with bowel cancer can be an emotional rollercoaster and the GoodCourse programme aims to help reduce anxiety around your diagnosis. We've worked with bowel cancer patients to ensure it provides effective, helpful support.
By enrolling on the course, you will receive a text each day for five days – sharing support, advice and engaging videos on topics from coping with a diagnosis and talking to people you're close to, to relaxation techniques and information about sleep and fatigue. It's free to sign up and you can enrol by simply scanning the QR code below.
How does it work?
Open the camera on your phone and point it at the QR code below so it fills up around half your screen
Once the QR code is read, your phone will offer you the option to tap to send a message to a specified number
Tap that option and send the text message you're prompted to. You've now signed up
Some mobile phones may not have a camera or may not be able to scan QR codes. If you're viewing this page on a mobile phone, tap and hold the QR code and chose the 'send message' option. If you have any issues signing up, please email email@example.com.
