BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD FACE CANCER ALONE

STM NUMMOS LIFE WILL BE HOSTING A MACMILLAN BIGGEST COFFEE MORNING IN SEPTEMBER FOR THE 3RD YEAR RUNNING, HELPING TO RAISE FUNDS TO HELP THE WONDERFUL WORK OF THE GIBRALTAR CANCER CENTRE (FORMALLY KNOWN AS THE LADY WILLIAMS CENTRE).

The first centre was sited in a room at Transport House and known as the Lady Williams’ Cancer Day Care centre in recognition of Lady Williams.

The support was immense and continuous from the community. The service expanded and moved to Devil’s Tower Road where for almost 30 years the service has provided support for people living with cancer in the community

The New Centre is housed in a beautifully, restored colonial building in South Barracks Road on the south side of Gibraltar enjoying landscaped gardens and spectacular views. The restoration has been achieved thanks to the Gibraltar government with its interior re-designed in close collaboration with the Society to meet the needs of people who use the facilities. It is staffed by a registered nurse and a team of volunteers and is visited regularly by other health professionals such as dieticians and physiotherapists.

There is a close partnership with the Gibraltar Health Authority Palliative Care team. A weekly survivors coffee morning is held every Monday. THEY HOPE TO EXTEND THESE SERVICES IN THE FUTURE AND ANY FUNDS RAISED WILL HELP TREMENDOUSLY.

Plans to run nurse led clinics, G.P. consultations, community physiotherapy sessions, a professional counselling service and a programme of therapeutic activities all of which will be tailored to suit the needs of the individual patient. This programme will include:

  • A NURSE ASSESSMENT: This one to one consultation with a specialist registered nurse usually takes 30 minutes. The nurse assesses a patient’s individual needs and concerns and is an ideal way for patients to get to know the staff who will be supporting them and to discover all that is on offer in terms of dedicated care and support. The patient is then offered a programme of care tailor made for their needs.
  • A YOUNGER PERSONS SESSION: This is dedicated to meeting the needs of the under 55s through individual and group support.
  • YOGA: As an aid to relaxation and a sense of well-being, offered by local yoga practitioners.
