Cancer Support Service

A new service to support cancer patients

 

We are delighted to announce that our new Cancer Support Service will be up and running in January 2020.

The need for this service was identified through several focus groups held with patients from Chipping Campden surgery and it is our intention that we will be here to provide information, support and comfort for those with a recent cancer diagnoses and continue that support through treatment to remission, or through the progression of the illness.

We will be working closely with Chipping Campden surgery and two other local surgeries, reaching out to patients and offering psychological support through one to one appointments and support groups. We’ll also be working closely with Freestyle 360 gym to provide fitness, wellbeing and nutritional advice in preparation for treatment or post-surgery. The remainder of this year we will continue to plan the programme and more details will be released soon.

What will the service provide?

  • Drop in cancer support
  • Support groups
  • Special topic sessions
  • Bespoke Fitness program in conjunction with Freestyle 360
  • Nutrition talks and advice

 

Heather Mitchell will be heading up the new service. Heather is a highly regarded registered nurse who has an extensive background in palliative care, having managed hospice at home teams and worked in the day hospice at Sue Ryder in her previous role. You can read more about Heather here.
