HCNCF plans for a new support centre (July 2013)

Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund are to develop an Information and Support Centre (ISC) on land behind Cutlers Hill Surgery.

The ISC committee has been appointed and they have agreed an architect’s design which has been submitted to council planners. Members of the committee have canvassed local opinion, asking people what kind of services they feel would benefit patients and their families. We are grateful for your help with this important development. We will have further consultations and involve local people. We are developing a separate section of this website for the ISC project. A prospectus has been produced to enable us to seek sponsors and donors to help with construction costs.

 

Who will it be for?

It will be a ‘drop in’ centre for patients with cancer and other life threatening or progressive  conditions, and their families

 

What will it be for?

To provide information and support and to help you understand your diagnosis. It may also offer:

Financial advice

Lymphodoema Service

Counselling

Wig fitting

Specialist children’s support and family services

Venue for local support groups eg  Alzheimers, Carers’ Group etc

Health and Wellbeing days

Complementary therapies

Bereavement Support
