Funding from Dry July continues to support the Wellness Centre at Liverpool Hospital, directly the Wellness Manager role and the 'Pamper Project'.
Programs offered at the centre include Tai Chi, Qigong, meditation, acupuncture, cooking, gardening, zumba, and exercise physiology.
Greg Webb, the Wellness Manager, received the Cancer Services Directors Award for South Western Sydney Local Health District in 2017.
This award celebrates individuals and teams for their collaborative efforts in raising the standard and profile of SWSLHD Cancer services. It recognises excellence in community engagement and highlights initiatives and programs that improve outcomes or experiences for patients, families and the community.
There is a groundswell of interest in the benefits of supportive health to Cancer treatment, and in keeping with this emerging evidence, Greg has developed new partnerships to deliver supportive therapies and programs for patients and their carers’. By reaching out to external providers, multiple new programs have commenced and new referral pathways developed to assist patients in accessing our service, and achieving and maintaining their best health.
Congratulations to Greg and the team for the work on these wonderful programs.
