Local Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Services
There is a Macmillan Information and Support Service in every Trust area, linked to your local Cancer Unit. They provide free information and confidential support to people living with cancer, as well as their carers, friends and family. They can offer benefits advice, counselling and complementary therapies, as well as practical help such as transport to hospital, help at home and questions about work or travel insurance.
Please be aware there may be a change to local opening arrangements for these support services in each trust area in response to the COVID outbreak, however all services can still be contacted via telephone and email and many of the support services offered are also available virtually.
