A new complementary therapy service was launched earlier this year at The NGS Macmillan Wellbeing Centre at North Bristol NHS Trust’s Southmead Hospital, allowing the many benefits complementary therapies provide to be experienced by cancer patients and their carers. Set in landscaped gardens, the centre provides a haven for anyone living with a cancer diagnosis who needs advice, support and information.
The centre is for families and carers as well as people with cancer, and the team provide support by appropriately signposting visitors to the services available, as well as running a weekly timetable of activities. The timetable includes mindfulness, relaxation, yoga, creative expression and a walking group.
The Wellbeing Centre is hosting a one-day CPD Cancer Care Workshop (10 points), which will be run by FHT accredited lecturer Marie Duggan on Wednesday 25th November 2015. The workshop is aimed at working within an integrated medicine model, enabling practitioners to gain confidence, knowledge and skills in adapting their treatments for cancer patients and carers.
Places are limited but a concessionary rate of £80 is available for the first five FHT members wishing to attend the day (normal price £95).
To book, please contact Marie Duggan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07712 703753.
