Driving Service

Treatment for cancer can mean many visits to hospital for appointments: to see the Oncologist, Consultant,or for chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Our Driving Service provides door to door transport for cancer patients who find it difficult or stressful to travel to hospital and is open to anyone who has cancer though children must be accompanied by an adult.

Use of our driving service takes alot of the stress and financial pressure of traveling for the patients and their families. When you use the service, journeys will be pre-booked for you in advance.

Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies work alongside traditional medicine but do not replace it. The aim of complementary therapy is to bring more balance to the body (homeostasis). Each individual is unique and a holistic approach seeks to treat the person as a whole.

Physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of one’s being are all important in the overall approach to each treatment. Each person is encouraged to take responsibility for their own health, by eating a healthy balanced diet, maintaining a good fluid intake, reducing stress and learning to relax. 

We have three therapists, all specially trained to work with people with cancer. Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki are offered. This service is available to both patients and their carers.

A Bra-Fitting Service


After surgery and treatment for breast cancer some women feel less confident in their body and self-image. Feeling good in your clothes can make a real difference.


We provide a specialist Fitting Service to help women find the right solution in bras and swimwear for them. A wide range of products are available and our staff will help you choose the right garment, in the right size, to suit you. The service is completely free and totally private.

The confidential consultations take place in the Care for Cancer Centre in Omagh, where we stock a range of bras. In exceptional circumstances a home visit can be arranged.

This service is by appointment only, on Mondays. To find out more information contact the Centre on 02882 246599 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
