The Macmillan Living With And Beyond Cancer Programme

The Macmillan Living with and Beyond Cancer programme is working to ensure that people living with and beyond cancer are leading as healthy and active a life as possible.

More people than ever before are living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. The impact of cancer does not suddenly stop when the treatment is over.

Macmillan is working in partnership with the NHS to help improve the experience of people living with and beyond cancer in South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire.

Improving local cancer services

We want everyone who is diagnosed with breast, prostate or bowel cancer to live well after a cancer diagnosis.

This means:

  • Getting your care in a way and place that works for you
  • Tailored care and support for you and those close to you
  • Support to manage your recovery yourself.

Macmillan has committed £6 million over the next five years to improving cancer services.

For up to date news and useful documents visit the Commissioners Working Together website.

You can sign up to our email updates by contacting Laura Boyd.

Listening to people affected by cancer

Macmillan will ensure the voice of people affected by cancer is heard every step of the way. We have started to ask people affected by cancer across the region, ‘What is good cancer care and support?’.

We’d like to hear your story, as little or as much as you’d like to share. Telling your story can make a huge difference to improving cancer care services.

If you’d like to be involved please contact Ian Margerison or Caroline Shead.
