NHS staff theatre ticket offer
The Phoenix Theatre in London is offering £10 tickets to the new musical ‘The Girls’ to NHS staff on all Tuesday performances until 11 July. This includes Tuesday matinees from 24 April when the performance schedule changes.
Tickets are subject to availability and can be booked online, over the phone (0844 871 7629) or in person – simply by quoting offer code NHS10. The best available seats at the time of booking will be offered. Each member of staff is eligible for one £10 ticket, and will be asked to show their NHS identification card when they collect their tickets.
Cancer isn’t fair, but employers have to be
People with cancer are protected by law from unfair treatment at work. Under the Equality Act 2010 (England, Wales and Scotland) and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (Northern Ireland), it’s unlawful for an employer to discriminate against someone because they have, or have had, cancer.
Lisa, who had uterine cancer, found out about her rights, which helped her feel more equipped to speak to her employer. She says ‘Macmillan informed me of my rights at work - I now feel stronger’. Find out more at macmillan.org.uk/rightsatwork and make sure that anyone you support who is working knows their rights by signposting them to this website.
A reminder of how we can support you
International Nurses Day takes place on 12 May. As always, we’ll be celebrating the work of all Macmillan professionals and the incredible support you provide to people affected by cancer day in and day out.
We also wanted to remind you of the support we can offer you in light of current pressures or if you’re working through change.
