New gym group for cancer patients
PUBLISHED: 11:56 28 September 2013
NEW exercise sessions especially for recovering cancer patients are being launched at Weston's Hutton Moor Leisure Centre.
The 12-week programmes will be available via GP or hospital referral, and are tailored to meet the needs of people who have recently completed cancer treatments.
A specialist cancer rehabilitation instructor will be on hand to deliver sessions to help people recover from the effects of their treatment.
The sessions are run in a ‘safe, friendly, supported and motivating environment’, and are designed to ‘improve physical strength, mobility, function and quality of life’.
The programme is run on Mondays and Tuesdays, and is open to anyone aged 16 or over who is 12 weeks post cancer treatment.
To find out more, speak to your doctor, or call Jo Rickwood at Hutton Moor on 01934 425900.
