Maggie's Centre

Door open days


In a former stable block on the edge of the hospital site, Maggie's Centre, designed by Richard Murphy Architects, is an innovative refurbished building where people affected by cancer can drop in for information and support. Extension, also by Richard Murphy, opened 2001. There are informal talks throughout the day about this and other Maggie?s Centres. They are named in honour of Maggie Keswick Jencks, who came up with the idea for friendly and imaginatively designed day-care centres during her own illness.
