Objectives

HCCN comprises of the Hunts Community Cancer Nursing team working in partnership with HCCN the charity. We provide community-based care for people in the Hunts area who are living with or recovering from cancer. Increasingly cancer can be lived within the same way as other long-term conditions. Our mission is to help people to take back control of their lives and play an active part in managing their health. While the NHS funds the nursing service through CCG funding [Clinical Commissioning Groups which replaced Primary Care Trusts], every other aspect of the support we offer to people is provided through the HCCN charity free of charge.  

Activities

HCCN’s programme of activities - focused on health, emotional wellbeing and education that deliver evidence-based impact - is facilitated and delivered through volunteers. The charity is run by unpaid volunteers and all funds are raised through public donations.
