Since 2004, Rotherham Cancer Care Centre has been supporting local people who have cancer or have been affected by cancer. Through one to one assessment we give people time to talk about their fears and concerns and provide complementary therapies and/or counselling to improve quality of life.
We provide a place where people can share feelings and thoughts without guilt or the fear of upsetting anyone. We help people feel more in control and so more confident with what is to come.
Our services are free, and we work with the NHS to proivde professional counselling services and complementary therapies.
Any that needs to access our packages is welcome to call 01709 375729, there is no need for an NHS referral.
If you're affected by cancer help is a phone call away.
