Heart and cancer support available by phone 24/7

Cancer and heart conditions touch everyone. So if you or one of your employees is affected, it can impact your whole team. According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime.In regards to heart conditions, according to the British Heart Foundation there are around 7.6 million people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK.2

At AXA Health, our experienced health practitioners make sure no one has to find their way alone when diagnosed with cancer or a heart condition. They’re available at the end of the phone 24/7 so you can rest assured that your team will be able to pick up the phone and talk through any worries or concerns. Speak to our specialist cancer and heart nurses 9am-5pm Monday – Friday. Outside these hours our experienced nurses and counsellors provide round the clock support by phone.  

For your employees, comfort could mean discussing their symptoms. Or talking through how to break their news to the people they care about. Or it could be something as essential as a listening ear and some reassuring words. Whatever they need, whenever they need it, one of our practitioners will be here to talk to them.

The practitioners will have the time to get to know your employees, understand their condition and listen to what they're going through. They'll explain treatment choices in words that make sense. And they'll advise them on everything from eating well during chemotherapy to coping at home after heart surgery. 

And they're just a phone call away for family members, too. Making it easier for your employees to face their journey, one step at a time.
