Anniversary Centre, Sydenham
Our Anniversary Centre is open from 8am until 9pm seven days a week
The Anniversary Centre has been designed to create a modern, social environment for St Christopher’s patients and their families and friends. The centre provides a range of medical, nursing, social and support services for people coping with life-limiting illnesses and their carers.
Our aim is to enable you to access the services you need as easily as possible. You may choose to receive a range of services during one visit, or may prefer to spread out your appointments to better suit your needs.
In the centre you will find:
- a large social space
- a suite of consultation and therapy rooms
- group rooms
- a bathing suite
- a rehabilitation gym
- a hairdressing salon
You can be referred to spend a planned day in the centre, or you can drop in at any time. You can find out useful information via the internet or from our information area, eat in the café, or wait for your appointment or group activity.
The centre has a large group of specially trained volunteers who will be able to signpost you and help you with any questions.
You can find out about the latest events on our What’s on pages. Examples of regular social activities include:
