Pendleside survivorship and support groups

Positive health and well-being service

Our positive health and well-being service is 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 week. 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 for complementary therapies and psychological support.

An individual programme of support can be agreed and planned by coming along to our "Drop in" session held every Wednesday 12 - 3.30pm.

The day services team will be happy to answer any queries - telephone 01282 440110.
