Recovery package resources

Below is a list of resources to help you implement the four interventions of the Recovery Package. These range from research reports and sharing good practice guides, to tools and templates. We also have resources for people affected by cancer to ensure they are fully informed and supported throughout the Recovery Package.

Addressing concerns identified from the Concerns Checklist

Macmillan is developing a series of resources for patients, about each of the concerns listed in the Concerns Checklist. We hope to have resources for all the concerns by early 2018. This will be linked electronically on My Care Plan, for health organisations that use eHNA.

If you are a person with cancer that is reviewing these documents, we suggest that you speak to your key worker who may be able to provide you with additional information about local support services.


eHNA pocket-sized leaflet

This resource provides a brief explanation of what an HNA is, and highlights that patients are able to gain extra support by completing one. Space is provided for key workers to enter their contact details and the patient's eHNA passcode to enable them to complete it online.

Order it on be.Macmillan.

Assessment and care planning folders

If you are a healthcare professional, this folder contains a paper assessment and care plan for you to carry out with your patient. It contains a triplicate so you can keep a copy for your records, give a copy to your patient, and send a copy to your patients GP.
