'Living Beyond Cancer' in County Durham

'Living beyond cancer' ImageA joint initiative between County Durham and Darlington Community Health Services (CDDCHS), County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT) and St Cuthbert's Hospice is being developed for patients as they come to the completion of their cancer treatment across County Durham and Darlington.

The six week pilot programme has been developed with funding from Macmillan Cancer Support.

The course begins on Thursday 4 November 2010 and is aimed at addressing people's needs as they approach the end of their treatment in order to avoid some of the issues that sometimes occur when people feel unable to move on with their lives, such as getting back to work, managing changes to diet or coping with fatigue.

As the course is new to the area we would welcome people who may have completed their treatment some time ago but not had the opportunity to benefit from such support to come along too.

The programme will take place between 1pm - 3pm at the Pioneering Care Centre, Carers Way, Newton Aycliffe DL5 4SF.
