Cherry Lodge’s Outreach Service is designed to address the health needs and cancer concerns of people who might find it difficult to get to the CL centre. ‘Health and wellness outreach surgeries’ are held at a variety of community venues, especially in the west of the borough to serve the needs of Barnet’s large multicultural population. Anyone can be seen at these surgeries, without an appointment, if they have any worrying symptoms or concerns about their general health, or if they have questions about their cancer or its treatment.
This service was suspended for a time due to Covid but has now resumed. Please email Kirsty or phone her on 020 8441 7000 for up to date information.
Kirsty Mabb, Macmillan Outreach Nurse
Kirsty joined Cherry Lodge in 2006, having previously worked in an inner city London borough as a community nurse specialising in palliative care. Since 2015 her post has been funded by money raised by Summer Soulstice, resulting in her more informal title of ‘Soulstice Nurse’.
The Cherry Lodge Information Stall has a valuable role enabling us to take information about our services, cancer and general well-being to people within our wider community. It can be found at fundraising and other events in the locality, spreading the word about Cherry Lodge’s services and offering a useful selection of cancer information leaflets.
