Hertfordshire Macmillan Benefits Advice Service

Benefit advice services

A partnership between Hertfordshire County Council and Macmillan Cancer Support, we provide a specialist benefits advice service for people affected by cancer and their carers at key pathway points – diagnosis and staging; treatment; palliative care and end of life. We can help with claims for benefits like personal independence payment, attendance allowance, ESA, universal credit and carer’s allowance and can assist in challenging decisions, from mandatory reconsideration through to appeal. The service can also help with applying for grants from Macmillan, Blue Badge applications and help with health costs such as travel to hospital. The service is available weekdays from 9-5 over the phone and by email. We also provide face to face advice sessions in Watford and Lister Hospitals, Peace Hospice Care, Watford and the Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted (more information about the timings for these is available at the individual sites).
