Supporting you through your cancer care
The Supporting you through your cancer care partnership will:
- Coordinate and streamline support, so cancer patients experience a smooth treatment journey, especially at transition points.
- Focus on training and education to enable healthcare professionals to deliver more compassionate and personalised cancer care, as well as help empower patients to take control of their own cancer treatment and care.
- Fully integrate cancer services and sharing of information between primary and secondary care services.
- Improve long term follow-up care.
We are combining our expertise and innovations as we listen to you, to understand and shape personalised care services. One of the services developed by the partnership is the Macmillan Navigator service.
Macmillan Navigator service
Macmillan navigators will guide you through your care, from diagnosis to the end of treatment. They are able to answer on behalf of the clinical nurse specialist team, referring to specialists as needed and helping you access local support services.
To speak to your Macmillan navigator, call free on 020 3313 0303 (Monday to Friday 8am - 8pm or Saturday and Sunday 9am - 5pm).
