Macmillan Survivorship Project
The Active Wellbeing Service are working with the John Le Vay, Cancer Information Centre at Ipswich Hospital to help those who are currently undergoing, or have recently completed cancer treatment to become more physically active.
This bespoke 12 month service can only be accessed by referral from the John Le Vay information centre based at Ipswich Hospital. With the support of one of our Physical Activity Advisors, clients will be able to discuss their motivations to get active, different options that are available locally to them overcome any barriers, issues or concerns they might have. The Advisor will support clients through an initial group consultation, phone calls and on-going reviews to provide support, motivation and advice.
Clients will be signposted to local physical activity opportunities which have been checked by our team to ensure they are safe and appropriate. These range from health walks to gentle exercise classes, falls prevention, Fit Villages projects and even adapted sports. Our Advisors will help people to find the right option for them, taking into account their interests, location, transport issues, any additional needs, budget and other concerns.
