Glasgow's new Maggie's Centre is a welcome addition to facilities for cancer patients in the city.
A place for patients to get away from the clinical setting of a hospital, Maggie's has been a tremendous success since the first one in Glasgow opened near the Western Infirmary.
As well as the first class medical and nursing care that is provided at hospitals like the Western and Gartnavel, where the new centre will be based, there is another side of the care that is needed to help people cope with diagnosis and help with recovery.
The Maggie's Centre provides that emotional support for patients and families to adjust to their new situation and has a range of professionals to ensure everyone's individual needs are met.
Evening Times readers have a strong bond with the charity, helping to raise £500,000 towards the target to open the first centre in the city and charity again funded the new centre with donations form Walk the Walk.
In just 15 years the vision of founder Maggie Keswick Jencks has helped thousands of people.
All the patients and family who make use of the new centre will, we are in no doubt, receive the same excellent care and compassion that Maggie's is renowned for, not just in Glasgow, but across the UK.
