Speak to our specialist team
The Ovacome Support Service Freephone 0800 008 7054
The Support Line is staffed by a specialist team offering information and emotional support to women, their families, friends, carers as well as health professionals.
The calls we receive cover many aspects of ovarian cancer and can range from questions about signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatments to clinical trials.
Some people call to request Ovacome fact sheets, others for emotional support or just to talk things through.
Callers say they are pleased to be able to speak to someone not involved in their care, although we are not able to offer medical advice about their illness and treatment or interpret test results.
