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.

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. 

Refreshments

There is a small cafe area inside the Robert Ogden Centre where you can buy a hot or cold drink. As our meeting is late morning / lunchtime you may like to get something light to eat if you're feeling peckish. 


About our group

We’re a very friendly and caring group meeting on the last Monday of most months. We have a close relationship with the Lymphoma Action support group in Teesside (Darlington) and occasionally we visit them for a trip, tying in going to their meeting. Organisers of their group have also visited us as guest speakers.

We have previously organised joint afternoon tea social meetings in York, and hope that this tradition will continue. 

In the summer months we have been known to have our meetings at a different location a little later in the day, so please do always check first before going along to a meeting.


Going to a meeting for the first time

Some people find it reassuring to have a particular person to look out for when going somewhere new. If you’d like to chat beforehand or to find out more about the group please do call either of the group contacts on the numbers above.
