at Southend University Hospital










You can now find us on Facebook 

Here at the centre, we can provide 

  • A quiet and relaxed space for you to come and sit.
  • Literature on all aspects of living with cancer, in a variety of formats.
  • Opportunity to discuss cancer treatments, side-effects and other related issues.
  • Support and the opportunity to talk to someone confidentially in a private, comfortable quiet room.
  • Access to counselling and referral to other support services.
  • Welfare and benefits advice.
  • Information and support events, such as Look Good Feel Better. Information can also be provided over the telephone or via email.
