Holistic Care CentreThe Trinity Holistic Centre, in the grounds of The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough is working with the dietetics service at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to run a Macmillan pilot eight-week programme – ‘Eat Well Feel Good’.

The programme is targeted at people who are living with and beyond cancer and intends to support lifestyle choices and promote healthy weight management.

Heather McLean, the centre’s business manager, said: “The programme is a cancer-specific nutritional and healthy weight management programme which will run from Monday 28 July. Towards the end of the programme we will make use of the exciting new kitchen and garden developments at the centre.

“Based on feedback and outcomes from the programme it is hoped further targeted programmes will be developed as funding becomes identified.”

The sessions will be held at the centre on Monday evenings 6pm-7pm from 28 July to 22 September 2014. To register, or find out more, please contact Heather on 01642 854839 or email heather.mclean@stees.nhs.uk
