Mac Voice, the magazine for Macmillan professionals: Spring 2016
A new team is helping people in Edinburgh and Lothian to overcome work problems.
The Macmillan Work Service at NHS Lothian provides local work support for people having cancer treatment. Delivered by NHS Lothian’s vocational rehabilitation team, the service aims to help people maintain their preferred working life, which could mean staying at work during treatment or returning to work afterwards.
The service is based at the Edinburgh Cancer Centre and is open daily from 10am–1pm, or NHS Lothian patients can call 0131 537 9579. If you work in Edinburgh or Lothian and would like a referral form, please email Veronica Sanudo. The team are also available to talk to you and your colleagues about this new clinical service if you are based in Lothian, Fife, Borders or Dumfries and Galloway. Please contact Veronica Sanudo on 0131 537 9579 to organise a ten minute talk during protected learning times or any other time that would be convenient.
Contact Gerard Mcfeely, Macmillan Consultant Occupational Therapist on 0131 537 9579 or Veronica Sanudo, Assistant Case Manager on 0131 537 9579.
