Right By You

We recognise that sometimes despite best efforts, care for people with cancer can feel disjointed, with different services working separately. Right by You is focused on providing joined-up care and more personalised support for people affected by cancer.

Right by You Wessex is a service joint funded by Wessex Cancer Alliance and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Right by You supports people nearer to home, with dedicated cancer specialists working with GP surgeries, linking to these teams and the services within local communities.

This team will provide support, linking to hospital based services. The Right by You team will focus on supporting people with their diagnosis and managing the impact cancer on their lives. Support needs will be identified by the person, based on their concerns and the things that matter to them.

The person with cancer will be at the centre of this support with teams working together to ensure people get the support they need, when they need it.
