Headwear Options

For some, the thought of losing their hair through chemotherapy can be as upsetting as the treatment itself. Some people use hats, some prefer scarves. Others find a wig is the best option for them.
 
The wig clinic is an NHS service for patients that takes place at the Norwich Big C Centre. Wig care products are available for sale any time during opening hours. Please call the Norwich Big C Centre for more information on 01603 286112 cancer.information@nnuh.nhs.uk or call in and speak to a member of the team.
 
This is a free NHS service at the Norwich Centre. You will need a referral from a Nurse specialist or Doctor. If you have any questions contact the Norwich Centre who will be able to help.

A wig may not be the most suitable option for everyone. Others prefer hats or scarves.  Our trained staff and volunteers can show you how to tie scarves and accessorise for your own personal style. This is a drop in session held at all four Big C support centres.
