NET Nurse

Being affected by NETs can be an extremely challenging experience, both for patients, and those supporting them. People are faced with a huge amount of information to process, decisions to be made, and disruptions to life, work and family routines. The Unicorn Foundation offer a free, confidential telephone information and support service via our NET Nurse email and telephone line. Kate Wakelin, our NET Nurse is available to answer your questions, offer emotional support and explore practical strategies for living well with NETs. She can also send out printed information, and refer to other relevant services such as dietitians, support groups, counselling services and financial advice.
