The ACT Region PCSG comprises of men who are survivors of prostate cancer and their partners. While members of the Group do not provide medical advice, they can help the newly diagnosed man, his partner and those concerned for his welfare to understand the treatment options available and how these options can be accessed. They can also provide perspectives on what may lie ahead after treatment has been undertaken. Views and information from members of the Group can be obtained through attendance at monthly meetings and coffee mornings or by contacting individual members.

The Group actively promotes awareness about detection and treatment of prostate cancer in the community through events and awareness talks. They also maintain a library of print and audio-visual materials and send a monthly newsletter (The Walnut) via email to subscribers. Copies of The Walnut are also available on the Group’s website.

Membership of the Group is free.



The Group holds monthly meetings and coffee mornings.
