After a period of closure, the Rosewood Centre was officially reopened today by our Chief Executive, Len Richards, alongside The Kirkwood’s Chief Executive, Michael Crowther.
The Rosewood Centre is a multi-disciplinary service, established in partnership with The Kirkwood, to support the health and wellbeing of patients with cancer and other life-limiting conditions, and their carers.
Len Richards said: “After a period of closure caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re thrilled to be able to open the doors of the Rosewood Centre once again.
“The centre has recently been refurbished to a high standard to enhance patient experience and care. A satellite building based within its own relaxing garden areas in the grounds of Dewsbury & District Hospital, its purpose is to provide patients with a seamless and personalised care journey.
“Services provided at the Rosewood Centre are free, confidential and tailored to an individual’s needs to improve quality of life.”
Services include; specialist nursing, medical advice and support, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological support, art and craft therapies and more besides in the coming months – all tailored to an individual’s needs, with the aim of helping patients to adjust to the physical limitations caused by their illness, along with any social and psychological problems, in a supportive and friendly environment.
Referrals are made by GPs, District Nurses, Macmillan Nurses, and Consultants.
