Abstract:
The complementary therapy team at the Christie Hospital has won a highly prestigious national Prince of Wales award. The award is for "Good Practice in Integrated Healthcare" and applauds the hospital for including complementary therapies as part of patient care at the Christie. His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales presented The Prince of Wales Foundation for Integrated Healthcare Award to Christie staff at Lambeth Hospital in London on the 11th December 2003 (see picture). The Gateway Clinic at Lambeth Hospital jointly won the award (reference here to a future publication). The Christie Hospital started providing complementary therapies 7 years ago, and the service has greatly expanded in the last 3 years. Patients can choose a complementary therapy treatment in addition to their medical treatment. A 15-strong complementary therapy team provides back and head massages, reflexology and other treatments. The paper reports on the various aspects of the project, identifying who leads each part and how it is being developed and evaluated.
