The Oxford University Hospitals 'Here for Health' Centre is teaming up with Macmillan Cancer Support once again this year to host a free Health and Wellbeing Event on Saturday 13 May for people affected by cancer.

The aim of the event is to support people living with a diagnosis of cancer to maintain their health and wellbeing during, and after, their treatment. 

Guests will have the opportunity to meet and talk to representatives from a wide range of support services across Oxfordshire, including Age UK, Carers Oxfordshire, Mind and Go Active Get Healthy.

There will be workshops on practical strategies for emotional wellbeing and physical activity to aid recovery, as well as a session on healthy-living action-planning and long-term goals.

The event will be held at the John Radcliffe Hospital, where free parking will be arranged for guests, and Macmillan Cancer Support is kindly providing a free lunch and refreshments.

"Last year's event was a great success, and it is hoped that this year will be even better!" says Kate Boys, Health Adviser at 'Here for Health', based in the Outpatients Blue Area at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

"We're delighted to be working with our friends at Macmillan again to offer this opportunity to people affected by cancer."

Spaces are limited, so if you have been affected by cancer and would like to attend this event, please contact us as soon as possible before 1 May 2017.
