What's new on Cancer Care Map this week

 
 

We now have over 600 organisations listed on Cancer Care Map. This week we have added a number of hospices up and down the country that are providing a vital service to those affected by cancer. Here are just three of the many hospices across the UK who are supporting families living with cancer.

In Surrey we have the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices. This is a charity that office hospice care for patients and their carers and families outside of the usual hospice centre. They specialise in delivering holistic care for patients with progressive advanced conditions that are life limiting. The hospice care is delivered in the community in patient homes, in care or nursing homes or through its in-patient ward in the hospice; as well as through the Bradbury Wellbeing Centre. The Hospice also provide bereavement support, complementary therapies, family and carer support. Referrals can be made from six Surrey Boroughs [Spelthorn, West Elmbridge, Runnymede, Surrey Heath, Woking and North Guildford]. 

 

Next we have Claire House Children's Hospice. Based in The Wirral, they look after seriously and terminally ill children. The Hospice provides specialist nursing care and emotional support to help families. Other support services include respite care, groups and counselling, play and creative therapies, day care and bereavement support. 

And in Wrexham we have the Nightingale House Hospice.  Nightingale House provides specialist palliative care services, free of charge, to patients and their families across North East Wales and the border areas. Services include a 12 bed inpatient ward, a 15 patient daycare unit, an outpatient clinic, occupational therapy, complementary therapies, physiotherapy including a hydrotherapy pool and an ambulance service. A range of bereavement support services are offered including a specialist service for children and young adults.

These are vital services and an important part of cancer care in the UK. To tell us about support services in your area please get in touch here.
