What we do

Cavendish Cancer Care provides physical and emotional support to those living with cancer and their loved ones. We offer a range of complementary therapies to choose from such as acupuncture, massage and hypnotherapy: for more information on the different kinds of services we offer, see our A-Z therapies. We have also designed a special children and young peoples service to support under-18s.

Anyone affected by the impact of cancer, included family and carers, can access our packages of support free of charge. We are a self referral service so you do not need to be referred by a healthcare professional.

Call us on 0114 278 4600 and we will see you within 5 working days of you making contact with us. Your initial appointment will be with one our assessors. They will spend up to an hour with you, listening to your concerns, helping you to sort out your thoughts and decide how we can best support you. Together, you then choose an appropriate therapy which will be organised for you before you leave. After completing an agreed number of therapy sessions, the assessor will meet you again to check on your progress and review your treatment here. You will then be discharged from the care of Cavendish Cancer Care.

Our service is completely confidential, but as we are part of your overall care, it is usually in your own interests that our assessor writes to your other doctors and nurses. However, we will not contact anyone without your permission.
