Additions at Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre
LCTC is refurbishing an outdoor area adjacent to the new Wellness Centre (a Dry July funded project) to provide an area for patients to gather and attend support groups and sessions. This will include furnishings, a pergola and outdoor BBQ.
The cancer centre is also installing a new coffee machine for patients to access in the treatment waiting area, as well as a patient beeper system which will enable patients to move about while waiting for their appointments.
Liverpool Cancer Wellness Centre
Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre at Liverpool Hospital used funds raised by Dry July 2012 to fit out a new wellness centre. The centre offers a friendly, supportive environment that provides a relaxed non-clinical area for patients and carers in the South Western Sydney district.
The centre comprises an indoor and outdoor kitchen, beauty room, physiotherapy room, wig library and patient resource library. Services offered include support and education groups, information sessions, occupational therapy assessment clinics, exercise classes, psychology and social work clinics.
