We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
Hilary Plant, Joint Clinical Lead at the Macmillan Support and Information Service, says, ‘We are delighted. This figure represents patients visiting the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre| to attend the Macmillan Support and Information Service on average one in every five visits.’
Charles O’Hanlon, a patient from East London being treated for the second time for Hodgkin lymphoma|, described the Support and Information Service as a lifeline. He had been able to discuss vital decisions about his treatment with Macmillan Support and Information service staff, receive counselling and use complementary therapies. ‘I used to see the name Macmillan written on the door and think, “That’s not for me, that’s for people who need palliative care”. But now I am a huge fan and use the centre regularly. The service is with you throughout your cancer journey and afterwards.’
Jess Tudor-Williams, Cancer Division General Manager for UCH, says she is proud of what staff and volunteers have already achieved as the centre works towards becoming a world-class cancer centre.
