West Suffolk rehabilitation service Working Towards Wellbeing (W2W) has been shortlisted for a major award for an innovative project which helps cancer survivors get back to work.

W2W, which is part of Bury Physio and based in Maynewater Lane, Bury St Edmunds, is among the finalists in the Rehabilitation Initiative of the Year – Provider category of the Rehabilitation First Awards.

It was set up to provide support specifically for people returning to work after a period of illness, primarily cancer, and deals with clients internationally, including the Netherlands, France and Australia, as well as all over the British Isles.

Health psychologist Dr Julie Denning, a director of W2W, will be attending the awards event at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington High Street, London on Friday, September 9.

She said: “This is a very prestigious award within the industry, so we are very proud to have been nominated and obviously more so if we do win it.
