Following the success of last year’s Eat Well Feel Good scheme, The James Cook University Hospital’s Trinity Holistic Centre is delighted to be launching a new six-week programme for this year due to start on the 24 August.

Eat Well Feel Good Programme

The Eat Well Feel Good programme was specially designed by Macmillan and the British Dietetic Association to support those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis in managing a healthy weight and making healthy food choices.

Thanks to support from Middlesbrough Environment City the programme will also include some cookery skills to put new knowledge straight into action in the centre’s newly refurbished kitchen.

Heather McLean, the centre’s business manager said: “We know that many people worry about their diet following a diagnosis of cancer or other long term conditions and this programme is an opportunity to receive evidence based guidance from an experienced team.”

Following feedback from participants last year and funding from South Tees CCG community innovation fund, the upcoming programme will also be open to anyone living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis or other long term condition and their loved ones.

Patient Johnathon Taylor said: “It was incredibly useful and helped us all make more thoughtful food choices after my cancer diagnosis. It was really helpful to be able to share experiences with others in the group. I would recommend it to anyone.”

All sessions are developed by a professional dietitian with experience of cancer and other long term conditions. Sessions are delivered in a relaxed informal setting within the centre.
