Prostate cancer charity launches free nurse-led helpline

  • Comment
A free nurse-led helpline for men and their families concerned about prostate cancer has been launched by a leading cancer charity today.

A free nurse-led helpline for men and their families concerned about prostate cancer has been launched by a leading cancer charity today.

The Prostate Cancer Charity has made its confidential helpline, run by eight nurses, free to callers from UK landlines in a bid to help more men get information and support they need from specialist professionals.

The move follows a survey by the charity that showed that Afro-Caribbean men are three times more likely to be diagnosed with the disease than their white counterparts.

Chief executive of the charity, John Neate, said: 'We hope that now the service is free we will be able to reach as many men as possible.'

The new freephone number is 0800 074 8383 and will be available from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and from 7 to 9pm on Wednesdays.
