The Well delivers high standards of care and support to people affected by cancer through complementary therapies. The aim of each therapy is to promote health and well-being in individuals, enabling them to live a life beyond a cancer diagnosis. Benefits are not just physical but also psychological.

Therapies include Acupuncture, Massage, Reiki, Reflexology, paraffin wax treatments and a range of  beauty therapies. There is also a tailor-made headwear service located on the chemotherapy unit where patients can buy hats & scarves at cost price and learn how to tie scarves following chemotherapy. The Well will also offer advice on how to look after your nails, scalp and hair during and after treatment for cancer. A service offering make up based eyebrow replacement is also available.

The service is open Monday – Friday and is on an appointments basis only.

The Well staff maintain close liaison with the Hospital’s cancer teams. The service is supported by volunteers, some of whom have been affected by cancer; and who provide a wonderful meet and greet and reception service.
