The UK’s integrative cancer care charityHelpline 0870 163 2990


A podcast jointly hosted by Dr Penny Kechagioglou, Senior NHS Clinical Oncologist and Robin Daly, Founder and Chairman of Yes to Life.

In this occasional podcast (around one per month) Penny and Robin will host guest Practitioners from the world of Integrative Oncology – which in plain English means a broad, holistic approach to cancer care that includes support for body, mind and spirit.

The podcasts will be an opportunity to explore the Oncologist’s perspective and the resources that a wide range of Integrative Practitioners can add to cancer care. In particular, we will aim to highlight ways that Integrative Medicine can help with circumstances that conventional care either lacks the facility for (eg spiritual and emotional support) or struggles to find successful solutions to (eg immune support during treatment, pain management etc).

Each Episode will feature one or more guest experts from the world of Integrative Medicine who will engage in an investigation into the potential of Integrative Medicine to offer better solutions in terms of prevention, treatment, management of side effects, and treatment outcomes.
