Health and Wellbeing Centre

Health and Wellbeing Centre

Our Health and Wellbeing Centre in Barrowell Green in Winchmore Hill is the base for North London Hospice’s outpatients and therapies. It offers outpatient clinics and a wide ranging selection of support, treatment, courses and workshops for patients, their carers and families in the three boroughs we serve. Our aim is to enable all those affected by a life-limiting illness to feel supported to live as well as possible.

The Centre focuses on supporting areas such as symptom management, rehabilitation, self-management, social, psychological and emotional wellbeing.

2020 – A virtual Health and Wellbeing Service 

The Health and Wellbeing Centre has continued to deliver services during the Covid-19 pandemic albeit in a totally different format.  The team has been offering phone and virtual consultation to help manage symptom issues as well as the development of the groups via Zoom. The exercise groups, managing breathlessness and fatigue sessions and movement and wellbeing group for those with a neurological condition have all been adapted to run via zoom. Our relaxation course has also run on line and our complementary therapist has been offering online acupressure to help alleviate some symptoms. We also have had some of our wellbeing activities running weekly such as a group sing – a- long and yoga. We are developing some on line resources to support the groups that we run. Our Wellbeing Co-ordinator is new in post and is developing a programme of wellbeing activities. Feedback from all participating has been positive. We have had a number of our skilled volunteers supporting us with the online group work which we could not run without their valuable input.

We have just started offering individual face to face appointments with our nursing team, following Public Health England guidance and hope to gradually expand this over the coming weeks. We expect that virtual sessions and face to face activities at the centre to co-exist in 2021.

Who is the centre for?

Our service is open to anyone who has been affected by a life-limiting illness – those with a cancer diagnosis as well as those with later stage respiratory conditions, rare neurological conditions and Heart Failure.

You can be referred by any healthcare professional and will accept self referrals to the service, just call the Hospice on 020 8343 8841. Once a referral has been accepted you will be offered an appointment with a member of the team, to talk about what is important to you and to formulate a personal programme with you.
