The Macmillan Living With And Beyond Cancer Programme

It's a cause for celebration that more people than ever are surviving after a cancer diagnosis but we know the impact of cancer doesn't suddenly stop when treatment is over.

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

The Macmillan Living With And Beyond Cancer Programme is specifically looking at breast, bowel and prostate cancer services.

We believe everyone should experience high quality cancer care and support.

Improving local cancer services

We believe everyone diagnosed with cancer should lead as healthy and active lives as possible. 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 to a multi-million pound partnership with the NHS to improve cancer services by 2020.

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.
