Guy’s Cancer Hospital is still operating mandatory mask-wearing and has precautions in-place to keep visitors safe. We haven’t taken the decision to host an in-person meetup lightly and feel that it’s important for our members to meet up in person at this time.

If you have any questions for the dietician, occupational therapist and/or physiotherapist, or general questions about the day, you can send an email to us, or post your question in the ThymicUK Facebook group.
