Carol Kynaston, surgery receptionist, stocking the Macmillan Info Point
Cancer information will be available to patients visiting the Cambrian Surgery in Oswestry thanks to an information point provided by Macmillan Cancer Support.
The information point will be situated in the waiting room and will contain leaflets about a range of cancers and about the impact that a cancer diagnosis can have. As well as tackling health issues, the leaflets will cover subjects such as the support that there is available on financial matters and how to talk to family members about cancer.
Tudor Humphreys, Macmillan Development Manager, said ‘Cancer will affect one in three of us in our lives so everyone will be affected and the more information and support we are able to provide, in everyday settings, the better. We are pleased to be able to provide this information point so that people with concerns about cancer in Oswestry can have access to the right information at the right time.’
Sheila Jones from Cambrian Surgery said, ‘We are pleased to be able to host this information point which will enable people coming to the surgery to obtain the information they need about cancer quickly and easily. We want as many people as possible to know about it so that they are not struggling to find the right information and support.’
For further information about cancer, please visit the Macmillan website or call 0808 808 00 00 and speak directly to a cancer support specialist.
