Wellness and recovery 

NEMICS health services are working to better support people living with and beyond cancer. 

A question of language

Cancer survivorship means different things to different people.  Where the term 'survivor' is used here it refers to the health and wellbeing of people who have completed cancer treatment with the aim of remission or cure and to those receiving ongoing maintenance treatments.   Wellness and rehabilitation models of care are equally applicable to people living with advanced cancer.
