Cedar Centre – Health and Wellbeing Hub

The Cedar Centre is a welcoming hub offering a range of groups and activities to support our patients living with and beyond their cancer diagnosis. There is a calming group room, counselling support, complementary therapies and Macmillan welfare benefits advice all on offer within the Hub.

What types of activities are available in our service?

  • EMPOWER – a health and wellbeing event when you are diagnosed with cancer
  • HOPE (Help overcoming problems effectively) – a six week course following treatment to help build resilience and find your inner strengths
  • HOPE (Time and space) – a workshop for friends and family to take time to talk about coping when a loved one has cancer
  • Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) pampering sessions - attending a LGFB provides a real source of support, bringing together groups of women in a relaxing and light hearted environment. With the help and encouragement of LGFBbeauty consultants, the free two hour session involves you being taken through a specially designed ten step skincare and make up regime
  • Macmillan workshops which include relaxation and visualisation, art therapy and creative writing
  • Complementary therapy service which offers reflexology, aromatherapy, indian head massage and light massage for our cancer patients and their carers for patients under the care of an oncology/haematology consultant
