The NGS Macmillan Unit at Chesterfield Royal

Every year, 1,500 people in North Derbyshire are told that they have cancer. We want to continue supporting the NGS Macmillan Unit at Chesterfield Royal in 2018.

Thanks to the support of local people and a significant donation from the National Garden Scheme (NGS), the Macmillan Chesterfield Appeal successfully raised the £2.5 million towards the cost of the NGS Macmillan Unit, which opened it's doors in June 2017.

The exciting new development means people with cancer in North Derbyshire can receive treatment, care and support in one purpose-built centre.

The new centre enables the specialist teams to provide all out-patient chemotherapy and clinical haematology in one place. It also provides the following:

  • treatment, care and support in one location
  • 21 chemotherapy treatment chairs, 2 treatment beds and 3 treatment rooms with couches
  • specialist information and advice
  • counselling
  • complementary therapies, welfare benefits advice, practical support and dietary advice
  • access to self help and support groups
  • signposting to the voluntary and community sector for support.

Please continue to support our work at the NGS Macmillan Unit

Even though our appeal has ended, this is only the start of our partnership with Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Over the next few years we will be investing a significant amount of money to fund new projects and health professionals at the hospital and elsewhere in Derybshire. This includes funding a new Welfare Rights Service and a Macmillan Supportive Care Team, consisting of three Nurses and a Clinical Navigator to help extend the service and provide a more comprehensive range of support services. 

We really need the continued support and generosity of the people of North Derybshire, whether that's volunteering your time or organising a fundraising event for us. If you would like to make your donation over the phone, please quote PE0939. This is so we can ensure your funds are attributed to our work in Chesterfield.

There is a small chance that some services will not go ahead, or will cost less than anticipated. Any surplus funds will be used on other vital Macmillan services in Derbyshire or the surrounding areas.
