The origins of Wirral Holistic Care Services stretch back 20 years when 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 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.
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.
As well as their supportive therapies and nursing consultations, they have a drop-in facility that is open Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm. They also offer a telephone helpline. Qualified nurses and team members are available to answer questions and offer help and guidance in all aspects of cancer.
