Welcome to the Fern Centre, wellbeing support for local cancer patients

We are incredibly proud of the support that The Fern Centre continues to offer cancer patients in North Devon. Opened in 2020 following a £1.5m appeal by our charity (then known as Over and Above), the cancer and wellbeing centre at North Devon District Hospital offers invaluable access to a whole range of information, complementary therapies, counselling and support. Royal Devon Hospitals Charity continues to provide ongoing funding to ensure the centre is there for local people at a time when they need it the most.
