Find out about practical tools for your patients to help them manage their cancer treatment and guides to help them dealing with work-related and financial issues.
|The Macmillan Organiser| is a handy, portable tool that's a lot like a personal organiser. It helps patients keep track of things such as symptoms, food intake, their appointments, medication and much more besides. It can help you to understand more about how your patients are coping with their condition and treatment.
Signpost your patients to this tool if they are unsure of the right questions to ask, or who to ask them of:
Part one - Initial work issues and absence from work [PDF]|
Part two - Preparing to return to work [PDF]|
Part three - Returning to work [PDF]|
Part four - Not returning to work [PDF]|
There is also a course on Learn Zone| to help employees deal with issues around cancer and work.
You can now access our most commonly requested information in a range of different languages, and we have also added a British Sign Language translation for some of our videos. Find out more about our translated information|.

Our interactive financial guide| is an online tool which provides guidance on mortgages, savings, wills, insurance and budget calculating.
We have resources for people who provide unpaid support to a family member or friend with cancer. These resources are designed to enable carers of people with cancer to be better prepared to look after the person they care for.
Benefits advisers| can help carers find the financial help they may be entitled to. For more information about benefits available to carers, visit the help for carers |page.
We’ve created this work it out tool for working carers [PDF]| so people caring for someone with cancer can find the information they need about managing work and care responsibilities. Using this tool will help carers ask the right questions of their employer and health professionals.
