The Maggie's Centres were the idea of Maggie Keswick Jencks. They are built in hospital grounds near to cancer care units to offer support and counselling for patients and family in a non-hospital setting. The first was built in Edinburgh in 1996. Others soon followed in the Scottish cities of Glasgow, Dundee and Inverness, Kirkcaldy, and another recently in Lanarkshire. Maggie Keswick Jencks, famous around the world for her daring garden designs and married to the architect Charles Jencks, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1988. It was her experience as a patient that inspired Maggie's Centres. []
