About Us

Our aim

Our aim is to provide support  for men and women suffering from bladder cancer, and their partners. We achieve this by offering information, support, and help in an informal social setting where members can converse at regular meetings.

Nurse specialists

We work closely with our Royal Berkshire Hospital cancer nurse specialist who attends most of our meetings.

New members

Many of our members first attend a meeting after diagnosis but before treatment, and find hearing about the experiences of other members very helpful in this confusing time.

Medical information

The information that we can give is based on the experiences and treatments of  members but we always suggest patients see a consultant for advice on treatment specific to them.

Warm welcome

We warmly welcome new patients and their partners. Membership is FREE.

Monthly meetings

At our monthly group meetings we invite a variety of  speakers including  bladder cancer specialists from the RBH..


The Reading Bladder Cancer Support Group has been running since October 2012 and now has around 60 male and female members, including partners.
