Directory – COVID-19
This special current operational hair loss support and suppliers directory has been especially put together by our Cancer Hair Care NHS Clinical Specialist team and panel. The idea is to connect you to specific hair loss suppliers who are able to support you at this time due to coronavirus restrictions. We will update this on a regular basis.
NHS Wig Suppliers
Video – Short helpful video below explaining how to get an NHS wig referral and locate an operational a supplier:
From 4th July 2020 many wig suppliers have re-opened. Your cancer nurse should now be able to refer you to your local supplier. However it may be the case that you have decided or been advised to shield. In this case your wig supplier should be able to offer you a remote service. Additionally all of these wig suppliers are running operational services available to any NHS patient throughout the UK. If your hospital’s NHS supplier is closed you can contact any of the suppliers in this directory who have committed to supporting you, so that you can still use your NHS referral.
