The patient Complementary Therapy Service at the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.
The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre (SROMC) is part of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT NHS Trust). It serves the population of Harrogate and the Rural Dales providing cancer treatments and supportive care services. The types of cancer treated within the SROMC are recognised by the National Cancer Intelligence Network as the common cancers, breast, colorectal, lung and prostate (Public Health England 2015). The unit also treats patients with a number of less rare haematological malignancies requiring day case or outpatient chemotherapy. The unit currently sees an average of five hundred new patients requiring cancer treatment each year. The centre also provides Health and Wellbeing Services offering a range of multi-disciplinary advisory, practical and self-management support for both hospital and community patients, carers and healthcare professionals who are affected by a cancer diagnosis.
