The Prince of Wales has visited a treatment centre for cancer sufferers and their families near Bristol.
The centre at Pill offers complementary therapy
Prince Charles officially opened the Penny Brohn Cancer Care unit at Pill, which offers complementary therapies to cancer sufferers.
The £12m private centre was founded by breast cancer patient Penny Brohn in 1980, and delivers a more holistic approach to patients.
Prince Charles sat in on a music therapy session shortly after arriving.
He spent a few minutes chatting to service users who had been in classes and also toured the centre's sanctuary and library during the 90-minute visit.
The prince later told 250 guests that the centre had helped lead the way in offering complementary therapies, which were now being accepted into the mainstream.
"Bit by bit people are becoming aware of the need to treat the whole person and that we are made of mind, body and spirit, he said.
"It is not an easy thing to understand in the fragmented world in which we live."
