Health and Wellbeing events - be part of the conversation


Health and Wellbeing Events are a key component of the Recovery Package and are vital in enabling health or social care providers to deliver outcomes for people affected by cancer.

Health and Wellbeing Events are all about education and information. They support people living with and beyond cancer, their carers and their families to take control and participate in their short and long-term recovery, giving them necessary information and promoting positive lifestyle change.

What is a Health & Wellbeing event

A Health and Wellbeing Event is supportive event to help prepare people affected by cancer, their carers, and their family and friends for the transition through their cancer journey. The event brings together a range of service providers from health, social, community and voluntary sectors.

Tameside & Glossop`s Macmillan recovery package team are looking at Health & Wellbeing events and would like to get as much input from people as possible so they have a wide selection of experiences to draw upon. The recovery package team are holding a Twitter Chat, if you would like to join in and share your views!
