In 1990, we held our ‘Medicine Reintegrated’ Conference to mark the tenth anniversary of the Centre. We fast became an authority on integrative approaches to cancer care, working alongside medical cancer specialists both in the UK and around the world.
At the time, Pat and Penny’s approach was thought by the established medical community to be on the very fringes of medicine. Today however, it’s recognised widely that our health involves more than just our body and that the mind and body are closely linked. It’s also now accepted that a person living with cancer can do a great many things to support their own health and wellbeing. This is what motivates our work.
