Here at Beechwood we offer support to those living with cancer and other life limiting illness, as well as their relatives and carers. We first began offering cancer care back in 1990 and since then our Centre has helped many people.

We understand just how cancer and illness can affect someone’s life, and we also know how helpful it can be to talk with other patients and carers. Visitors to our Centre can choose from a range of support, including

One to one Counselling Sessions Complementary Therapies Group sessions with other patients/carers.

We can help with every stage of cancer and our Centre visitors include those who have just been diagnosed and need a listening ear, people at different stages of treatment and those ready to move on following treatment.
