AXA PPP healthcare has unveiled a dedicated nurse service which will provide personalised support and medical guidance by qualified nurses, free of charge, for all of its UK medical insurance customers diagnosed with cancer .
The service is designed to offer a constant point of contact throughout treatment and recovery, provide knowledge, information and guidance about a condition and its treatment and is tailored to meet the individual’s needs. There will also be an opportunity to speak with an experienced qualified nurse and emotional support is available for both the individual and members of their families.
The support and reassurance that dedicated nurses provide can be a big comfort at what can be a difficult time. Dedicated nurse Viv Murray explained: “When patients first get in touch with us, we do our best to reassure them that we’ll be there to support them throughout their treatment and recovery. To begin with, we try to emphasise the small but important things that they can do to feel more in control of their situation.”
