Practical support with cancer care

We offer a wide range of support.

Rotten Row Walk September 2015

Here at the Macmillan Information and Support Centre, we aim to support people in whatever practical ways we can. This can include support such as:

  • Running our Macmillan walking group to help people get physically active.
  • Referral to our Wellness and Activity Co-ordinator for individual activity programmes and advice.
  • Organising Boots Pamper/mini-make over sessions at our centre, to improve a person's self esteem.
  • Organising Health and Wellbeing Events as an opportunity for people affected by cancer to meet key organisations and clinical nurse specialists, outside of the hospital environment.
  • Applying for blue badges.
  • We may be able to help people fill in forms as appropriate.
  • Making onward referrals to other organisations for support. This might include occupational therapy, clinical psychology teams and other Macmillan centres.
  • Contacting organisations/charities to ask for specific help a family may need e.g. volunteer gardening schemes.
  • Visiting the Medical Oncology Unit once a week, to talk to patients about the support they can access at the Macmillan Centre.
