Wirral Holistic Care Services
Profile:

The origins of Wirral Holistic Care Services stretch back 20 years. It was then that Dorothy Crowther, their chief executive, first proposed the idea that complementary therapies and ongoing care could help cancer patients to not only cope with the diagnosis of their illness, but also offer them a much greater input over improving their quality of life.

WHCS was formally established in 1988, within a disused ward of St Catherine’s Hospital, Birkenhead. From day one, the underlying ethos has not changed. This is to offer hope, comfort and support to the many thousands of people living with cancer, through their network of qualified and highly dedicated nurses, therapists, clinicians and specialists, all of whom kindly volunteer much of their time and energy for the benefit of the patients.

Notes:

To date, they have treated patients from all over the UK, as well as those with cancer from locations around the world: Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Greece Spain, the United States and Canada, even patients from as far away as Iran and India. They have won numerous awards for specialist patient care and WHCS is widely acknowledged as a genuine centre of excellence within the field.

Specialisms:

Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Massage, Reflexology, Reiki, Shiatsu.
