Written by Healing Boxes co-founder Grace Quantock, this programme will help you to equip yourself for your scan/appointment/results and beyond. Grace has supported thousands of people to live well with illness and life challenge and because she can’t talk you through each day of your scan/results wait, she’s made Scanxiety Support as the next best thing.

N.B: Scanxiety is not a medical diagnosis, but an informal description of pre-appointment stress. Scanxiety Support Programme is not providing medical treatment.
