MySunrise Cancer App launched to patients at Royal Cornwall Hospital.


June 08, 2018

MySunrise App goes live 11th June at Royal Cornwall Hospital.

A diagnosis of Cancer can be a real shock and a very uncertain time for patients and their families. With so many cancers types and new treatments, each patient journey is different. Answering questions and supporting patients with the right information throughout this difficult time is vitally important.

The MySunrise App is a free resource developed by the Oncology team at Royal Cornwall Hospital to support patients and their families right from diagnosis, providing information specific to their local cancer centre - The Sunrise Centre - as well as providing regional and national links to cancer support information and resources.

MySunrise provides a whole range of useful information supporting the patient journey and different cancer treatments available in Cornwall. It includes a number of useful videos on the service provided at the Sunrise centre as well as the treatments offered. It also provides information on 'What to look out for' if patients become unwell whilst receiving treatment and provides a 'Contact Us' section which includes a 24 hr chemotherapy advice line.

More general advice on local support groups, complementary therapies, the flu jab and driving is also included in the My Journey section of the app.

We very much hope the App serves to support Cancer Patients in Cornwall. Helping them to make the right decisions and give them back a bit of control during this difficult time.

The MySunrise App has been expertly led by Dr John McGrane, Consultant Oncologist at Royal Cornwall Hospital and has been kindly funded by the Sunrise Appeal.
