Tea’s up for Chorley Breast Care Unit’s patients!

Patients attending the Central Lancashire Breast Unit at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital now have access to free refreshments while they wait for their appointments, thanks to charitable donations.

Tea, coffee and cordial as well as biscuits are all available to refresh and relax patients after we agreed to fund the drinks and snacks, plus paper cups and wooden stirrers, at the request of clinic sister Samantha Lawler.

To pay for the service for the next 12 months will cost £624, but we’re delighted to have received a generous grant of £500 from the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund to help cover these costs.

Providing patients and those waiting with them with a brew and a biscuit or a cold drink might seem quite trivial but we all know how a cuppa can you make feel that bit better, and we want to do all we can to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible.

The unit sees approximately 120 newly referred patients per week of which around 20 to 30 will become breast cancer patients. Thank you so much to the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund, and all of our other wonderful supporters of course, for helping make this difference for these patients!
