A major part of the holistic approach of the new Cancer Centre will be a dedicated and innovative patient wellbeing, information and support hub. This significant and unique resource will be designed with patients, families and carers in mind to provide them with the support they need at every step of their cancer journey.  The hub will be fully integrated and situated at the heart of the new Cancer Centre, creating a friendly and welcoming environment for visitors to access information, emotional support and practical help and advice when they need it most.

×The wellbeing, information and support hub is not part of The Forever Friends Appeal’s fundraising and will be funded by a partner organisation. Full details of this collaboration and the new patient support facilities will be announced in February 2019.

This hub will provide a space (over three floors of the building) for people affected by cancer where they feel comfortable to explore tough questions and difficult emotions that can range from anxiety, to loneliness and isolation. Patients, carers and families will be able to access quality information, advice and support on all aspects of living with and beyond cancer, thus helping them to improve their quality of life.

More details will be announced February 2019
