Health and wellbeing videos introduction for cancer patients 

Our Macmillan Cancer Care Support Workers, covering different specialities, have created these videos in order to continue their health and wellbeing support for our patients during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Symptoms of Stress, Anxiety and Depression

We have prepared this video for cancer patients under the care of the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch hospitals to explain the impact that stress, anxiety and depression may have on a person’s physical, emotional and mental health. It will help you to recognise the different symptoms of each and how they may affect you.

Managing Stress and Anxiety

We have prepared this video for cancer patients under the care of the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals to give you some tips and strategies on how to manage anxiety, stress and depression. Most patients will experience a degree of these emotions at some point after a cancer diagnosis and this may help you to manage them without becoming overwhelmed.

Exercise and Physical Activity

This video covers exercise and physical activity for living with and beyond cancer.

Healthy diet

In this film our Cancer Care Support Workers outline the benefits of a healthy diet.
