Some of the other services we provide here at the Hospice
The Bradbury Wellness Centre
The Bradbury Wellness Centre was named as such thanks to the generous family trust who funded the build of this area. This is primarily used by our outpatients and we have dedicated rooms for pain clinics, lymphoedema, complementary therapy, counselling and bereavement services.
On Thursday mornings we now host Addenbrookes' MND Clinic. Please click HERE to find out more.
Our complementary therapy services, including gentle massage, reflexology adapted for patients, therapeutic touch and Reiki, are delivered from the beautiful new Bradbury Wellness Centre.
All our services are able to use this service: we have six highly trained therapists in the team and additional support is given by trained healthcare assistants and volunteers.
Our new home includes a rehabilitation gym within the Evelyn Day Therapy suite. Here our physiotherapists and occupational therapists help our patients to retain or regain as much of their physical capacity as they can. Equipment includes Medimotion bikes, similar to static exercise bikes in the gym but geared to the needs of our patients.
From the Gymnasium you can see Arthur's Shed, which is a studio room located in our landscaped gardens providing an alternative space for people to meet at the hospice. Project volunteers offer their time and talent to deliver a programme of wide ranging activities from woodwork to flower arranging, as well as provide less structured, informal sessions where users can just meet and chat.

Our Sanctuary is for people of any faith and no faith. Our Chaplain's office is adjacent to it and there is a sliding soundproof door which can be opened to the Bistro for larger memorial services, weddings or bigger formal events.
The Bistro is the hub of the Hospice, and a new addition to our services. It's a wonderful change for our patients who can now have freshly prepared food, rather than cook-chill.

We love to have flowers and plants in the hospice: they are always appreciated by our patients and visitors and various local supermarkets including Sainsburys and Waitrose have been so generous in donating flowers past their sell by date. Our team of volunteer flower arrangers are experts at turning these into wonderful creations which you will find dotted around the building.
Our new hospice home has three times the amount of garden and outdoor space of our previous Mill Road site. As part of the design process, we have ensured that these spaces are as much a part of the facilities as the indoor areas.
Planting has been carefully thought about, so that there are interesting points of colour and light all year round. We are so grateful to the fabulous team at Scotsdales Garden Centre and Nursery Ltd who donated hundreds of plants and that so many of our corporate partners (including Astra Zeneca, Barclays Corporate, The Moller Centre, GE Energy, Lloyds Bank, Cambridge Building Society, and teams from Churchill, St John's and Fitzwilliam Colleges) volunteered to help with planting. Moving forward our beautiful gardens will be lovingly tended all year around by our volunteers. The Charity funds the plants and other garden requisites and any major works needed.
Equipment and refurbishments
Since becoming an independent hospice, the contribution from the NHS continues to help fund an element of the equipment available for patients at the hospice. However the Charity will continue to invest in equipment and where necessary, fundraise specifically for certain items of equipment or refurbishment projects that may be required within its facilities at the hospice or the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech.
Education Centre – Hire our Rooms
Our fully equipped Education Centre is available to hire and can be used flexibly as three private individual rooms for up to 30 persons in each room or as one large conference room for up to 90 persons, all complete with AV/projection.
To enquire or to arrange a visit please contact Louise Higgins, Education Business Development Officer firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on 01223 675780.
