Join Our Healthy Lifestyle Activities

Introduction

HCCN doesn’t just offer nursing care. We believe that the best way to help people get their lives back on track after cancer is to equip them with the skills they need in order to play a full part in managing their health now and into the future.

Sometimes that means helping people develop new habits, perhaps around exercise or diet but it also means supporting people whilst they manage their emotional responses to their illness and get back on track to rebuild their lives positively.

We have studied the research to understand the ways that help can be offered and we have used that research to put together a series of fun and useful events.

We know that people sometimes have to spend time on their own during the day as loved ones work and that time spent alone can be unhelpful. Signing up for a course can fill a couple of hours with laughter, thought and a little challenge.

Often people can’t drive for short periods during their treatment, but there’s always someone very happy to provide a lift. Nearly always there will be another patient who has been in that situation who is just happy to help.

We have put together a programme of events and activities all of which you can choose to use. Why not just come and find out?

Newsletters

We produce four newsletters a year and these will also contain topical information, maybe about travel insurance, but will also carry a core of valuable health management information like what to look for around recurrence and who to involve to help you. These are sent to you at home either through email or the post.

The Drop In

This happens every Friday at the Holiday Inn at Brampton Racecourse. Open from 10am to 12.00 mid-day. You’ll meet people there who have come to chat or to see the nursing team, who are always there, and of course also to join in the yoga class. You can bring someone with you.
