Cancer Care Centre

Cancer Care Centre

Our cancer care centre was made possible by a partnership between WWL, the Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The unit contains:-
  • 12 Chemotherapy treatment areas
  • Counselling facilities
  • A complementary therapy suite
  • A Macmillan Information and Support Services

Some chemotherapy treatments which used to be undertaken at the Christie can now take place at Wigan. This is much easier for patients and reduces travelling time whilst they are undergoing treatment.

A wide range of complementary therapy treatments for example reiki and massage are offered at the centre, which many patients find very helpful and eases some of their symptoms.

There is also a Macmillan Information and Support service which offers patients, relatives and carers access to up-to-date information at all stages of the cancer pathway, as well as, practical psychological and emotional support.

The Cancer Care Centre also has a sensory garden which has been designed to give cancer patients, their families and carers a relaxing, comfortable retreat within the Hospital grounds.
