Daffodil Centre at St. Vincent’s University Hospital
The Daffodil Centre at St. Vincent’s University Hospital is part of the Irish Cancer Society’s cancer support service. It is a free, walk in service where experienced cancer nurses and specially trained volunteers are on hand to provide face to face advice, help and support to anyone affected by cancer. Patients and visitors can drop in at any time during opening hours – no appointment or referral is needed.
Talk to a cancer information service nurse or specially trained volunteer
A visit to a Daffodil Centre provides people affected by cancer with the chance to ask questions and talk through their concerns with specialist staff and trained volunteers. They provide information and support on a wide variety of cancer types, financial, practical, physical and emotional support. In addition to specialist staff, the centres stock all of the Irish Cancer Society patient booklets and leaflets about cancer as well as having an information point where you can browse through the Society’s website and other cancer-related information online.
Wide range of information, support and advice available
We understand that the information and support needs of those affected by cancer will vary from person to person so we make sure to offer a wide range of material to include:
- Information on cancer prevention and early detection, various types of cancer, treatments and side-effects
- Details of local and national cancer support services and other sources of support
- Practical help and advice to support carers, social welfare entitlements and travelling to appointments
- Chemotherapy education
- End of life services
- Adjusting to life after cancer
Visitors are welcome to browse the many booklets and leaflets we stock or use our internet access point. A nurse or volunteer will be on hand to help you find what you are looking for.
Patients, family members, healthcare professionals or anyone concerned about cancer can visit the Centre without an appointment.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday from 08.30 – 16.30
