The Resilience Room

Join us for this informal, interactive series of talks and group discussions led by one of the Penny Brohn UK Integrative Doctors and guest experts.  The sessions will focus on topics related to keeping you resilient and supporting your immune function using a range of strategies to reduce the impact of cancer and cancer treatments, and helping you to live well with, and beyond cancer.

At each session you will:

  • Hear from doctors who are working as GPs within the NHS but who also have expertise in using Integrative Approaches (lifestyle and complementary medicine) safely alongside standard cancer treatments
  • At some sessions there will be other expert guest speakers (register here for the Weekly email update for details)
  • Learn about topics which can help you support your own health as you live with or beyond cancer
  • Share your experiences with other people in similar situations
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions and share suggestions for other topics you would like covered in future sessions


Every Monday 10am - 85 mins
