The Leukaemia CARE team are delighted to announce our Nurse Service on the CARE Line which will now be available every weekday. As well as our nurse Angela, who is currently available on Wednesday and Friday evenings, Shirley will be joining the team during the day time.

Shirley and Angela both have over twenty years’ experience working within haematology and have even worked together in leading Birmingham hospitals as clinical nurse specialists during their career.

Shirley will be based at Leukaemia CARE HQ and will be on hand to answer your calls with expert advice or simply as someone to share your concerns or thoughts with.

CARE Director, Esther Wroughton said: “It’s fantastic news to have both Shirley and Angela on our CARE Line. It means that we can offer expert support to anyone that calls the CARE Line as well as being the only 24-hour blood cancer support line”.

The CARE Line is completely free to phone and is run by our nurses and volunteers from Leukaemia CARE HQ or from volunteer’s homes. What this means for you, is that your call is not directed to a giant call centre, but to a real person who is ready to give you advice and support whenever you need it.

Shirley Aston, our new CARE Line nurse said: “I’m really looking forward to joining the Leukaemia CARE team and helping support even more people affected by blood cancer. I’m eager to offer my knowledge and experience to discuss a patient or carer’s worries.”

Shirley will be available every weekday between 9am-5.30pm except on Wednesdays when Angela is available from 7.30pm-10.30pm as well as on Fridays.

You can also call outside of these hours to arrange a call back from Shirley or Angela when they are on duty.
