Mustard Tree – temporary closure

Our number one priority at the Mustard Tree is the health, safety and wellbeing of the people we support and our members of staff. As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are making changes to the way our services will be run for the time being as we close the centre.

We know this is a difficult and confusing time, but please rest assured we will be doing our upmost to ensure we are providing those that rely on our services the best possible care and attention we can.

New enquiries or questions from current patients

Our staff will be available over the telephone. Please call 01752 430060 between 09:30 and 16:00 where your call will be triaged by our centre staff. Our team will be able to give the support, guidance and information you need.

Pre-booked appointments

Any pre-booked appointments will now be taking place over the phone. We are moving all our counselling appointment to this method where possible. This includes those who are currently receiving counselling – your counsellor will be in touch over the next few days.

Complimentary therapies

Unfortunately all therapies, groups and gatherings are postponed at this time.

Benefits advice

For advice regarding benefits, please call 01752 430060. Telephone appointments will be made available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.

Outreach centres

We have temporarily closed our outreach centres in Kingbridge, Liskeard and Tavistock.

Whilst we understand these temporary measures may cause some worry, please rest assured our team will be doing all they can to continue the support we know is important to all of those we see and hear from at the Mustard Tree.

The Centre is available to anyone affected by cancer at any stage of the illness and offers a wide range of services within a comfortable environment where you can share your concerns, ask questions and receive support. The Centre is also available to relatives and carers and they will be able to also gain support and ask any questions they may have about their loved ones condition/treatment as well as any concerns they may have about themselves (eg emotional or psychological).
The Centre has a welcoming atmosphere with a comfortable area for you to sit and reflect or speak to someone about any concerns you have. We are also able to offer information about your illness, details of the support that is available to you and your family and offer you the opportunity to talk to someone about how you feel. For more information on these, please see our Support Services section.
The Centre is also available at the Outreach Clinics (Triangle Centres) at Kingsbridge, Liskeard and Tavistock one day a week. This is to be able to provide support to patients closer to their homes. For more information about the Triangle Centres, please see our Triangle Outreach Centres section.
