Your Journey

DIAGNOSIS

Your activity journey begins

At diagnosis your Clinical Nurse Specialist will provide you with lots of information about many services available to you, including Active Against Cancer. They can refer you to us there and then. You can also self-refer through our website at any stage of your cancer journey.

FIRST CONTACT

Within 48 hours

Once we have received your referral Active Against Cancer will call you to arrange your initial assessment with one of our specialised physiotherapists.

1:1 ASSESSMENT

Your initial one-on-one assessment will take place in one of our private treatment rooms, at Harrogate Sports and Fitness Centre. Our physio team will assess your mobility, fitness and address any concerns or questions you may have about the programme.

INDIVIDUALISED PROGRAMMES

Together our team will decide which of our activities best suit your needs and will invite you along to the most relevant classes.

PREHABILITATION

Our prehabilitation classes aim to optimise health and get all patients working towards achieving the recommended activity guidelines before surgery or starting treatment.

TREATMENT PERIOD

Our maintenance classes aim to keep you active and combat any fatigue and pain during your treatment period.

REHABILITATION

Our rehabilitation classes are designed to help you recover from treatment and/or surgery by rebuilding strength and fitness.

If and when you are able, Active Against Cancer can help you access many more exercise programmes, activity classes and gyms to help maintain your fitness for life!
