We offer a range of activities – which can vary in length from 1-hour to a full day programme. You can access nursing, therapy, social and spiritual support from our team of staff and volunteers. You’ll also be able to spend time with other patients and carers who are going through similar experiences and enjoy activities such as art, crafts, exercise and relaxation.
