Workshops are provided to support the current position along the cancer journey. Cancer treatment can be the most frightening thing to happen to you and your family. During the journey, through treatment, you may feel that you are losing control and that your cancer is not just damaging your body, but taking over your life! Sam’s Diamonds helps you to take back control and keep you moving forward. Sam’s Diamonds are proud to say that we seem to be the only all cancer inclusive support group in the Northwest of England. We believe that knowledge is power and by sharing experiences with other ladies with different types of cancer, will heighten our awareness for the future. This group is run by Cancer survivors for Cancer survivors and developed by the needs of the group. As well as the main group on Facebook we also offer a group specifically for those of you who are living with Cancer or have had a secondary diagnosis.

  • Willowbrook Hospice

    Willowbrook Hospice Registered Charity number 1020240 is a purpose built independent hospice opened since 1997. We are an adult hospice caring for patients with specialist palliative care needs, serving the community of St Helens and Knowsley. It was built with the support of local people. The Hospice continues to be supported by the generous donations of local people but is part-funded by St Helens CCG and Knowsley CCG who provide approximately a third of the running costs. The philosophy of Willowbrook Hospice is to treat each individual patient as a whole person and each patient is the focus of our attention from the moment they arrive with us. Through consultation and discussion with the patients, families and carers, we aim: (a) To provide free Specialist Palliative Care through the expertise of our Multi-professional Team to those patients referred to us, irrespective of diagnosis, by their GP, Hospital Consultant or Member of the Multi-professional Team. (b) To help each patient to live with dignity and to achieve the best quality of life in their lives, where possible. (c) To encourage patients, their families and carers to make informed choices and to take an active part in their care. We attempt at all times to discuss individual care as sensitively and privately as possible. Our services are provided through a 24 hour in-patient unit and a dedicated Wellbeing services unit called the Cedarwood Centre, offering day care and outpatient clinics. The day unit can provide for up to 66 places per week. Outpatient clinics are variable between Monday to Friday for medical, nursing and various therapies. We also provide care and support for carers and families through a family support service, including those with young children. From April 2018 we are developing a bereavement support service called ‘Willowbrook Connections’ with the primary aim to increase anticipatory bereavement support to those patients and families known to specialist palliative care across St Helens and Knowsley. In parallel we will develop a befriending scheme with the use of dedicated volunteers. Our purpose built inpatient unit is registered to care for up to 12 inpatients on 2 wards. Willow Suite has 7 beds, 4 of which are single rooms plus a 3 bed room. Oak Suite has 5 beds, 3 of which are also single rooms, plus a double room. All rooms are ensuite, with the 3 bed room housing a walk in bath which can be accessed 24 hours per day. There is a multi-sensory therapeutic bath for use by inpatients only, which can be accessed 24 hours per day. There are occasions when bed moves need to be accommodated to ensure that shared rooms remain same gender. There are a range of family/visitor areas within the Hospice which provide refreshments, vending, seating, TV and overnight stays can also be accommodated in separate rooms or at the patient’s bedside (excepting shared rooms). We have a Place of Quiet that can be accessed at any time of the day or night. This is for use by patients, carers, staff and volunteers. There is a large dining area/lounge with 24 hour vending facilities and comfortable seating for use by relatives and visitors to the Hospice. There is a private internal garden with water feature and lighting plus surrounding external gardens. Smoking is permitted for inpatient use only within the garden area in a designated smoking facility. The grounds where the hospice is located are maintained to a high standard, offering patients and families opportunities to experience the therapeutic benefit of planting, landscape and features placed in the areas. We have a dedicated rehabilitation assessment suite where a team of therapists and assistants provide individual assessment, treatments and group sessions during the week. The Cedarwood Centre has multiple rooms offering various therapies and quiet space. These include a creative therapy and multimedia suite, a multi-sensory relaxation area, a complementary therapy room, outpatient rooms, quiet rooms and dedicated dining space for day patient’s use. The unit has its own entrance and hospitality areas. Smoking is permitted for day patient use only within this garden area in a designated smoking facility in the day therapy garden area. There are two toilets and two disabled access toilets. One of which also hosts a shower facility for use by relatives who may have stayed overnight on the inpatient unit. When the unit is not in use by day patients and out patients all the communal areas are available out of hours for use by relatives and patients on the inpatient unit to relax and enjoy time away from the bedside.
