The Centre is a wonderful resource for patients, their families and carers to access information, complementary therapies, counselling, and other support, face to face and close to home. The Centre also has three accommodation rooms available for relatives of patients staying at North Devon Hospital so they can be near their loved ones.

More about us

The Fern Centre has been made possible by the hard work and generosity of our hospital charity Over and Above and the people of North Devon. The Fern Centre is a specially designed building to help bridge the gap in care supporting patients’ holistic needs to promote wellbeing during their cancer journey.
