Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Centre at St. James’s Hospital
For over 50 years the Irish Cancer Society has been caring for and supporting cancer patients and their families at every step of their cancer journey. The Society has unrivalled expertise in providing trusted and reliable information, support and advice on all aspects of cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment to all concerned persons.
Daffodil Centres are part of the Society’s information service. They are the first service of their kind in Ireland and bring the Society’s expertise to hospitals, where we can reach people in times of need. Funded entirely by the Society, each centre is staffed by Irish Cancer Society Cancer Nurses who are supported by trained volunteers. Together they take the time to listen and provide information, advice and support tailored to your needs in confidence.
The Centres are located in a designated space in hospitals near the foyer or main entrance to enable easy access. Daffodil Centres are open to all, no referral or appointment is necessary. They are designed to be a friendly, welcoming environment. Those visiting the centre include in-patients, out-patients, partners, family or friends, people with cancer worries or symptoms, those who want to reduce their risk of cancer and healthcare professionals.
We also welcome those who have worries about possible cancer symptoms or who want to learn more about reducing the risks of developing cancer. Healthcare professionals also use the Centres to avail of information and support for themselves and for their patients or clients.
You can drop-in at any time during opening hours – you don’t need an appointment or a referral. If you’re not able to visit us, we’re happy to talk to you over the phone or you can write to or email us.
Opening hours: Monday - Friday 8am-4pm.
