Resources for people affected by cancer
As well as the resources we've developed specifically for professionals, we also have a wide range of work-related resources for people affected by cancer. They're all free and available to order from be.macmillan.
Work it out: essential questions to ask
Back to top
It can be hard for people affected by cancer to know what questions to ask and who to talk to when it comes to work issues. So we've created Work it out featuring a range of questions for every stage of the cancer journey, with details of who to ask - for example, a GP or line manager.
We've also created Work it out for carers so they can find the information they need about managing work and care responsibilities. Please also direct people to our website for specific work and cancer information for carers.
Work and cancer booklet
Work and cancer looks at how cancer and its treatments can affect a person's ability to work. It covers employment rights and coping with the effects of treatment at work, for example tiredness, as well as providing tips on talking about cancer in the workplace.
Self-employment and cancer
Self-employment and cancer is designed to help people who have a cancer diagnosis and are self-employed. It includes practical information about cancer and treatments, balancing health needs and work, deciding who to tell and what to say to them, keeping the business operating, and managing finances.
