We’re here for everyone affected by liver cancer
If you or your loved one has just been diagnosed or is living with liver cancer, we’re here to support you every step of the way.
You can contact one of our nurses, join one of our support groups or chat to people on the British Liver Trust online community.
Speak to a specialist nurse
Need to talk to someone? Our nurse-led helpline is here for anyone worried about or affected by a liver condition.
Our nurses can provide specialist and confidential advice if you’ve been diagnosed with liver cancer or answer queries about liver health to help you feel more informed and navigate your journey, whatever stage you are at.
Call 0800 652 7330 between 9am and 3pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) or email firstname.lastname@example.org (emails can be sent at any time and are answered during helpline hours).
Please be aware that our helpline is not an emergency number and we cannot give medical advice. If you have a specific medical enquiry please call 111.
NB We will not tolerate inappropriate, abusive or threatening behaviour towards our nurse team and if this happens, we will end the call and block abusive callers from using our service
Join a support group
Many patients and families affected by liver cancer find it helpful to speak to others with shared experience who understand their situation.
We facilitate a number of virtual support groups which meet regularly to discuss a variety of topics. To find out more about our virtual liver cancer support group, fill in the registration form here:
A list of all face-to-face support groups for people affected by a liver condition across the country can be found here: Support Groups – British Liver Trust
Visit our peer-to-peer online community
The British Liver Trust online community is a supportive place where patients and families can be there for each other 24/7.
Members can post questions, share experiences and hear from others on how they or those close to them are managing their condition. The forum is hosted on Health Unlocked, recommended by NHS Choices and moderated by British Liver Trust staff.
Support for friends and families
If someone close to you has cancer, you may also need some support. If you’re a carer, you need to make sure you look after yourself too. You won’t be able to help your loved one if you get burnt out yourself. If there are other family members and friends around, do ask them to pitch in as needed. Regular breaks will help you to cope as well as possible.
Many of the services included on the Support from others page will also provide help for you.
