PATIENTS at the Macmillan and Hudson Palliative Care Centre in Wisbech can have a more relaxing time when they enjoy complementary therapies thanks to a new gift.

Wisbech and District Cancer Support have presented the centre with a new multi-positional treatment couch, which also has a foot plate.

Complementary therapist Patricia Harris said the couch has made life much easier and more comfortable both for patients and for the practitioner.

Pensioner Douglas Hampshire was among the first to try out the new comfy addition during a reflexology session at the centre on Monday.

He said the couch was much more comfortable than the previous one.

Money for the couch, which cost around £1,300, was raised by regular fundraising events held by the Wisbech and District Cancer Support.

Patients at the centre, together with relatives, are offered a variety of relaxing complementary treatment as part of the care package offered by the centre.
