Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Cancer Wellbeing Centre – Live Well with Cancer

Complementary therapies to support patients and carers affected by cancer.

The Wellbeing Centre is currently closed in accordance of hospital advice given due to the coronavirus. However, you can still get information, help and support by calling the Macmillan Information Centre on 0151 706 3720, email macmillansupportcentre@rlbuht.nhs.uk  or
via Macmillan Cancer Support Line on 0808 808 00 00. We have made this move to protect people, particularly vulnerable patients, the elderly and those with disabilities.


Complementary therapies can help to reduce the stress and anxiety both patients and carers can experience with a cancer diagnosis.

The therapists can also help with tips to improve your general health and wellbeing.

Therapies we offer:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Massage
  • Indian head massage
  • Mindfulness
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki
  • Relaxation/Visualisation

Our Cancer Volunteer Coordinator will discuss your requirements with you and provide information on the complementary therapies available. The therapist will carry out a consultation on the first session and a course of treatments will be booked. All treatments
are delivered in a welcoming, safe and relaxing environment and may last up to an hour

The complementary therapies can help to minimise the stress, anxiety and side effects from treatment. The therapists can also help you with tips to improve your general health and wellbeing.
