Come and take advantage of a rare opportunity to look round Big C’s purpose-built support centre for people with cancer and their carers.
The Big C Cancer Support and Information Centre, at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, was built for cancer patients and their carers, family and friends from all over Norfolk and Waveney.
Its warm and welcoming atmosphere and pleasant garden give a chance to relax and reflect away from the hospital and all things clinical.
Now the centre is opening its doors on Saturday 17 March - a day it is not normally open - to anyone who would like to come and take a look. It will be open from 10am to 3pm.
The centre is entirely funded by Big C. We do not charge for any of our services and visitors do not have to be attending the Norfolk and Norwich hospital - we are here for anyone affected by cancer in the Norfolk and Waveney area.
If you have cancer, or someone you know is ill, call in at any time - you don't need an appointment to talk to the staff at the centre, sit and rest, share concerns and problems or access support, information and advice. Our library is full of leaflets and books to browse or borrow and there are computers for visitors to use. Scarves, hats and wig care products are available. Scarf tying workshops are held monthly.
We also offer the following services by appointment for patients and carers: complementary therapies, Citizens Advice Bureau service (welfare rights service), a relaxation group, a well-being programme and counselling.
We run our Look Good Feel Better makeover sessions and a wig clinic as well as a bereavement support group for people bereaved through cancer.
The centre is usually open from 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday and closed on bank holidays
