Our Daffodil Centre in St Luke’s Hospital provides cancer information, support and advice, drop-in at any time during opening hours – you don’t need an appointment or a referral.

The Daffodil Centre is a supportive cancer information service provided by the Irish Cancer Society in St. Luke’s Hospital.

The centre is open to the public and if you have a question or concern about cancer you are welcome to call in at any time during opening hours. An appointment or referral is not necessary. Everyone is welcome – patients, their relatives and anyone with worries about cancer. We can also help if you want to learn about how to reduce the risks of developing cancer.
