With NHS funding, this service is free to patients. We believe that complementary medicine can play an important role in improving health and well being and want to ensure that many more people have access to effective healthcare, not just people who can afford to pay for it privately.” If you need information supporting the efficacy of complementary treatments, Get Well UK's publications page is a good place to start.

Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres – A growing UK cancer charitable organization, who are in the process of setting up care centres near NHS hospitals, throughout the UK. “Maggie's Centres are for anybody who has, or who has had cancer. They are also for their families, their friends and their carers. Their aim is to help people with cancer to be as healthy in mind and body as possible, and enable them to make their own contribution to their medical treatment and recovery. They allow people to address all aspects of living with cancer. They can share their experiences with others in similar situations and, with professional help, inform themselves about the medical realities of their disease. The friendly environment of the centres, close in each case to a major cancer hospital treatment centre, invites people to take time out and gives them a non-institutional place they can call their own.”
