       OUR SERVICES
 

The fountain centre provides cancer patients using conventional cancer treatments with multidisciplinary and holistic support. Integrated cancer care (ICC) provides  Medical care, follow-up and support for patients using non conventional or alternative anti cancer therapies. 

This is provided within the context of a NHS Cancer Centre and integrates the care of patients using non-conventional anticancer therapies back into the conventional NHS system.

ICC addresses the needs of patients using alternative anti cancer therapies using a non judgmental approach and without the constraints of clinical trials or ‘evidence based practice’, which are often obstacles in the use of alternative or non-conventional therapy use within the NHS.
