The Lincolnshire psycho-oncology service is a specialist psychology service provided in the community.
We provide psychological therapy for adults experiencing difficult emotional issues directly connected with a cancer diagnosis and/or treatment. The service is part of the physical health psychology specialty and is available to patients who live in Lincolnshire or whose GP is located in Lincolnshire.
We can also offer supervision and support to clinicians working with a patient with psychological problems linked to their cancer.
Referrals can come from any source. Most come directly from clinical nurse specialists and medical consultants.
