CarePlus Pharmacy has been unveiled as the sponsor of The Answers for Cancers podcast. The show explores what it means to have cancer in a language everyone can understand and is hosted by oncology nurses Anne-Marie Fay and Michelle Matthews, who are based at the Mater Private Hospital in Dublin.

The pharmacy chain is Ireland’s leading community pharmacy brand. The network has teams across more than sixty branches nationwide, focusing on empowering people in their communities to lead healthier, happier lives.

Topics discussed with medical experts on The Answers for Cancers podcast to date include various types of therapy and cancer, as well as related topics like mental health, fatigue, hair loss and fertility.

Michelle Matthews believes that the sponsorship will help to bring the advice to a greater audience: “In its first couple of months, The Answers for Cancers has very quickly struck a chord with listeners and the feedback after each of our interviews has been so encouraging.

Having CarePlus Pharmacy on our side will help spread the word and support more people receiving a cancer diagnosis, particularly in the current environment when leaning on others is so much more difficult”.

Anne-Marie Fay says the pharmacy group’s values align with their hopes for the podcast: “As medical professionals we recognise the important role of community pharmacists and the expertise they offer as part of the team that cares for cancer patients. With this in mind, it makes absolute sense to collaborate with them”.

Director of Marketing at CarePlus Pharmacy, Lee-Ann Hyland, says she is delighted to be working with the podcasting duo: “Our pharmacies support cancer patients and their families every day across the country. When we heard about The Answers for Cancers podcast, we knew immediately it would benefit so many people and we wanted to play an active role in boosting the project. We’re really excited to be working with Michelle and Anne-Marie and looking forward to each new episode”.

You can listen and subscribe to The Answers for Cancers podcast on all major podcast hosting platforms.
