INTEREST GROUP - support for patients being treated for cancer

Please note that this group has been cancelled for the foreseeable future.

The interest group is a positive health and well-being service for people recently diagnosed with cancer, or who are currently in remission. It is hosted by the day services team and has survivorship and wellbeing as its primary focus. You can select sessions from an interactive programme of events which will be held regularly throughout the year. These sessions may be delivered by Hospice staff or external specialist services, and will be focused on emotional and physical wellbeing. Outpatient appointments can be accessed separately for one-to-one complementary therapies and psychological support sessions.
