People in Lanarkshire with multiple sclerosis or respiratory and heart problems will benefit from two new drop in centres.
Both new services will be based at the Dalziel Centre, based at Strathclyde Hospital in Motherwell.
The Multiple Sclerosis Drop in Centre was launched on Friday 2 October and will be held every second Friday.
A second Drop in Centre, for people with respiratory and heart problems, will launch on Friday 6 November.
Carol Murphy, team leader of the Dalziel Centre, said: “The Multiple Sclerosis Drop in Centre is proving to be very popular and we’ve had some very positive feedback from the people attending.
“We are hopeful the drop in centre for respiratory and heart will be equally as popular.
“People can just drop in to meet people who share similar experiences, but there are also complementary therapies on offer, counselling sessions and acupuncture, which can be used for pain relief, relaxation and promotion of general wellbeing.
“We can also do one-to-one consultations with people if required.”
Both drop in centres, which run on alternative Fridays, will open at 10am.
The Dalziel Centre, is for patients, carers and families in Lanarkshire who are affected by a cancer diagnosis and life limiting illness.
