A new clinic providing ear acupuncture for people with breast cancer has been officially opened at Kent Oncology Centre.
The Susan Murray Ear Acupuncture Clinic has been set up thanks to the generous support from the Murray family from Headcorn.
Susan Murray, a former patient at the Kent Oncology Centre, died in June 2015, and her husband, Bill, and her children, were keen to do something positive in her memory.
It was decided that, with the help of Claire Ryan (Macmillan Nurse Clinician) and Roz Yates (Acute Oncology Nurse), the Susan Murray Ear Acupuncture Clinic would be set up, primarily for people living with secondary breast cancer. The complementary therapy aims to promote relaxation, help encourage a sense of well-being and assist in the management of menopausal symptoms, a common and debilitating symptom of breast cancer treatment.
The clinic was officially opened by Bill Murray and saw its first patients on 15 March this year.
