Prostate Scotland has developed a range of support and wellbeing services to help people across Edinburgh and the Lothians navigate prostate cancer. It is called the COMPASS project. The services available include:
- A prostate cancer one-to-one support service offering you and/or your loved ones the opportunity to speak to a Cancer Support Specialist about any aspect of your prostate cancer diagnosis. The free service runs in partnership with Maggie’s Edinburgh and appointments are available in the Centre, by phone or video call.
- A Living Well with Prostate Cancer course for those finished treatment or on long-term treatment and managing side effects. The free course runs over 7 weeks for 1.5hrs each week and is currently online via Zoom. The course runs in partnership with Maggie’s Edinburgh. The course is highly recommended by previous participants.
- An exercise video which has been specially designed for those with prostate cancer. The 50-minute video was developed in partnership with The Exercise Clinic who are experts in exercise for people with prostate cancer. It is a combination of cardio, resistance and stretching exercises. Grab your trainers and give it a go!
Further services are currently being developed and information will be available in due course. If you have any questions or comments about the Prostate Scotland COMPASS project, please get in touch with Christine Roxburgh (Services Development Manager at Prostate Scotland) by emailing her at email@example.com
