Prehab4Cancer Programme

Prehab4Cancer is a free exercise, nutrition and wellbeing scheme, designed by a team of NHS professionals and exercise experts, based on latest research. The aim is to help patients (and their loved ones) to cope with cancer treatment and feel better, physically and mentally. Prehab4Cancer plays an active role in cancer care, as well as living with and beyond cancer.

The Prehab4Cancer Programme can be found in leisure facilities across Greater Manchester, which means patients can access the service close to their home. An exercise prescription is created that is tailored to each patient following on from an holistic assessment with an exercise specialist.
