Macmillan has extensive experience developing health and social care services in primary, community and acute settings across the UK. We can help local planners, commissioners and service providers develop, deliver and improve existing cancer services, ensuring they're high-quality and cost-effective for patients and their families. We do not tender for contracts in the public or private sectors.
Macmillan has worked with partners in the National Health Services, local government and voluntary sectors to design cancer care services for over thirty years.
We also deliver our own services, such as the Macmillan Support Line telephone service. We have built up a unique body of evidence of the most effective service delivery models, examples of good practice and research into the needs of cancer patients.
Macmillan supports posts and services at all points along the patient pathway, right from the point of diagnosis, through treatment and on to survivorship, or end of life, in communities, hospitals and across health and social care.
Locally-based Macmillan staff| are available in every part of the UK to help planners, commissioners and service providers in the following ways:
