Smokers who light up in vehicles with children present face £50 fine from today – but the penalty could be far worse, as little ones face increased risk of serious illness. That’s the message from Public Health England and Fresh Smoke Free North East today, as Stoptober begins on the same day a new law banning smoking in vehicles transporting under 18s comes into force.
The Trinity Holstic Centre will need to find an additional £2,200 this year – to replace two beds that have broken down in the last week. More than 100 patients a month suffering from cancer and other long-term conditions could miss out on complementary therapies, after the two beds broke down within days.
The Trinity Holistic Centre is launching a new Eat Well Feel Good programme to coincide with National Dietitians’ Week (8-12 June 2015). The Eat Well Feel Good programme is designed to support those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis or other long term condition in managing a healthy weight and making healthy food choices.
A photographic exhibition featuring some powerful and poignant images captured by men with prostate cancer will be launched on Wednesday 25 March. In January, the Trinity Holistic Centre launched a pilot photography project – funded by Prostate Cancer UK – for men diagnosed with the disease. Now their work will be showcased at the centre at The James Cook University Hospital.
