Our Wellbeing Centre

Our Wellbeing Centre offers support to people and their families living with cancer or an advancing chronic disease. We are advocates of dynamic palliative care and wellbeing and we are able to assist with symptoms and provide skilled psychological and emotional support.

Our Wellbeing Centre Team

We have a team of volunteers working alongside our dedicated staff to support our Wellbeing Centre patients. The focus of our care is about wellbeing, our environment is welcoming and routines are flexible to allow for holistic individualised care.

Our Wellbeing Centre Patients

A careful assessment of each patient's needs will be made by a member of the team and, together with other professionals involved in the patient's care, we will monitor and address those needs throughout attendance at the Wellbeing Centre. After assessment, patients are guided into a service that most suits their needs. 

Consideration and support is also offered to carers. We link closely with all members of the multi-disciplinary team engaged in each patient’s care, and follow a strict code of confidentially.
