There are blue skies on the horizon, literally, for patients needing to undergo radiotherapy at Rosemere Cancer Centre, the region’s specialist cancer treatment centre at Royal Preston Hospital.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation has been awarded a £3,000 grant to fit skyscape ceiling panels above the treatment bed in the centre’s busy radiotherapy room.

The skies will have a positive impact as research has shown that looking at a sunny sky or nature scenes can help relieve patient stress and anxiety, making them feel more positive.

This grant has been provided by Law firm Farleys Solicitors from its Farleys Foundation.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s chief officer, Dan Hill, said: “We are extremely grateful to Farleys for this very generous grant, which has enabled us to hopefully improve patients’ treatment experience.

“We cannot thank its partners and staff enough for the fundraising help it has given us.”
