GenesisCare is one of the UK’s leading independent providers of advanced and innovative radiotherapy and cancer therapies. They operate 14 specialist oncology outpatient centres and work with over 750 oncologists and surgeons in the UK to design and deliver cancer pathways that improve life outcomes for our patients.
They know that for many people cancer is a life-changing experience and their goal is to help them meet the emotional and psychological challenges in the most positive way possible. To do this, they do more than treat the disease by embedding wellbeing and exercise medicine services throughout our pathways as an essential component of exceptional patient care.
They have formed a unique partnership with Penny Brohn UK – a ground-breaking charity with an ethos of ‘Living Well with Cancer’ who provide evidence-based wellbeing therapies such as counselling, acupuncture and reflexology. GenesisCare patients are offered a Penny Brohn Wellbeing Consultant and access to a personalised programme that’s based on research into the connections between psychology, neurology and immunology.
Their partnership with the world-leading expert Professor Robert Newton from the Edith Cowan University, Australia enables them to offer an evidence-based approach to exercise medicine. Exercise medicine is effective in improving treatment tolerance, building muscle mass and reducing cancer-related fatigue, among many other health-related benefits.
