We are excited to offer all Harbour patients (and anyone in your bubble!) a free online yoga class led by our oncology physiotherapist Candice Kitt this Tuesday (31st March) at 10.30 am.

This class will be live and a great way to connect and support each other during this difficult time. We will be running the class via Zoom, a free video-conferencing platform. To access Zoom, you will need a smartphone, iPad or a laptop/computer.
