Keeping Fit

Macmillan strongly recommend keeping fit to improve body & mind after Cancer. Whilst New Cross are unable at present to recommend courses in Wolverhampton, there are events available in Cannock. These are available to patients who do not reside in the area, but you must first be referred by a CNS (Dawn/Jayne/Leanne )

Courses are subsidised, but cost £15 per month or £3 per session and include a gym dedicated to GP/Hospital referrals, swimming, yoga, walks, golf and even group gardening. They take place at Cannock Leisure Centre on Stafford Road, not far from the town centre. Once you are referred, you will receive an appointment for a 45 minute session to set goals and discuss suitable activities. The recommendation is to do 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise a day, such as walking slightly faster to leave yourself slightly out of breath. This can be split into 3 – 10 min sessions if necessary. They will even provide an exercise CD for you to use at home.
