Hospital Visit Programme
[TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19]
The Hospital Visit Programme offers women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer with personal visits by BCF Volunteer Befrienders before discharge. The visits provide patients with emotional support and much needed information on recovering from surgery, coping with treatment, and available support services where follow-up is conducted primarily by telephone.
Regular hospital visits are conducted to several of the major hospitals, and ad hoc visits can be arranged to any hospital in Singapore. If you would like to arrange for a BCFVolunteer Befrienders to visit a post-operative breast cancer patient, please contact BCF.
