National breast cancer support charity The Haven has appointed Helen Crilly as its new breast care nurse and programme manager in Hereford.
The Haven, a breast cancer support charity that provides one-to-one care, was founded in 2007 and has three centres across England – one in London, one in Leeds and one in Hereford.
Ms Crilly spent nearly two decades in district nursing, with an emphasis in palliative care and oncology. This included 11 years in Western Australia where she became a specialist nurse for palliative care in a hospice.
Speaking on her appointment, she said: “I am pleased to be working as a programme manager for The Haven, working closely with the local hospitals in the region including the breast care nurse team, radiologists and oncologists.”
The charity offers free one-to-one support to improve the quality of life of anyone affected by breast cancer.
Specialist nurses and experts in nutrition, exercise, complementary therapies and emotional support provide tailor-made programmes of care for each patient.
