Venue

Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, St James’s University Hospital, Beckett Street, Leeds LS9 7TF

Directions

If you’ve not been to St James's hospital before please do have a look at the hospital website. They have a really good map showing directions. The Robert Ogden Centre is marked as number 55 on right hand side of their map.

As you walk from Beckett Street towards the hospital the first roundabout has a seating bench and a church on the right hand side. Turn right at this roundabout, keeping the church on your left. There will be two large red brick buildings to your left, walk between these and you'll find the venue with a curved glass window and blue framed doors directly ahead.

Alternatively - if you go to the Thackaray Medical Museum, the Robert Ogden centre is located directly behind.

Parking

There is a council car park on Beckett Street just a few minutes walk from the venue, opposite the main entrance to the hospital. It’s pay and display so make sure you take some coins with you. £3 should be enough to cover you for the meeting. If you park in the multi storey car park, ask for a permit at the Robert Ogden Centre.

Refreshments

There is a small cafe area inside the Robert Ogden Centre where you can buy a hot or cold drink.


About our group

We’re a very friendly and welcoming group meeting on the last Monday of most months. If you are affected by lymphoma or CLL, please come along.

How we support you

We appreciate that a diagnosis of lymphoma can sometimes feel overwhelming, and it can be helpful to reach out for support. We have many different services and ways in which we offer you support, whether you have lymphoma yourself or you know someone who has. Support groups are a place where you can meet other people affected by lymphoma, share your experiences and receive information in a mutually supportive environment.

Whether you are new to lymphoma or you have been living with the condition for a while, you may have questions or concerns, or maybe you'd just like to talk things through with someone who understands. You can contact our helpline services between 10am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, via phone, email and Live Chat.
