Right by You Wessex offers a new approach to providing personalised support, bridging the gap between primary, community services and secondary care and putting the person with cancer at the centre of support. The service is currently being piloted in Southampton and West Dorset.
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 be an additional resource to 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.
