We warmly invite you to our very first Mini Meet event which is a free regional information day for women living with or beyond a cervical cancer diagnosis.
Our annual patient information day Let’s Meet is such a popular event and from the feedback we receive we know it has really positive impact on the ladies who attend. As a charity we are always striving to reach and support more women affected by cervical cancer and so we are piloting a smaller regional get together which we have affectionately named a Mini Meet.
When and where
The event will take place at The Studio in Birmingham on Saturday 13 May 10am – 2pm, with lunch and refreshments included. We hope to hold more regional meet ups in the future in various locations.
Who can attend
The Mini Meet has been designed for women who have been affected by cervical cancer and each registered attendee is entitled to bring one adult guest to support them on the day.
The event is open to women and their partners, family or friends affected by cervical cancer. It is a great opportunity to meet others with similar experiences in a friendly, relaxed and supportive environment.
On the day
We'll be offering a number of workshops:
1. Ask the Gynae Onc – Dr Kavita Singh, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust
A chance to ask your medical questions and have them answered by a Gynae- Oncologist
2. Sex and Intimacy- Alison Cullen, Psycho-sexual counsellor
This session allows for a discussion on the types of sex and intimacy issues that can occur after diagnosis and treatment, and some hints and tips to help.
3. Menopause and HRT – Dr Esther Moss, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester
Treatment for cervical cancer can often result in women going through early menopause. The menopause is complex with many different symptoms and treatments, and there is lots of confusion over hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This workshop will provide an overview of the menopause and the facts about HRT, as well as other treatments for treating menopausal symptoms
4. Fertility – Dr Ghiyath Shayeb, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital
A chance to talk about issues of fertility after early stage treatment for cervical cancer.
5. Pelvic Radiation Disease - Dr Neeraj Bhala, Consultant Gastroenterologist at the University Hospitals of Birmingham
This session provides time to address the late effects that can happen as a result of chemo-radiotherapy and talk about ways to manage the problems that you may be having.
