Our team prides itself on taking a holistic approach to the treatment of cancer, therefore we offer four complementary therapy sessions free of charge to our patients.

Within the small dedicated complementary therapies team, our vision is to offer cancer patients a holistic and progressive approach to the treatment of cancer.

With the opening of the cancer centre at 22 Devonshire Place in 2010, a new dedicated therapy room opened, extending the therapy service to patients attending for radiotherapy and chemotherapy as well as seeing patients admitted to wards.

Many people are interested in using complementary therapies to help them cope with cancer and the various treatments this entails. Facing cancer can be very distressing and complementary therapies are offered alongside the clinical treatment prescribed by your oncology consultant such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
