About Frimley Gynae Cancer Support Group

History

Mr BeynonThe group was set up in 2004 by Mr Beynon, Consultant Gynaecologist at Frimley Park Hospital and has been facilitated by Frimley's Gynae Cancer Nurse specialists.  The purpose of the group was to enable women who had received a diagnosis of a gynaecological cancer to meet on a regular basis. The group would provide emotional support, information, speakers and social events. 

The first meeting was attended by over a hundred women and their families.

Eighteen years on and we have some original members who continue to attend our meetings.

During Covid we moved in online Skype and Zoom meeting which worked well for many members . Following discussion with the community nurses we identified that many members felt that this was the way forward with occasional face2face meetings and socials .
