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 face to face at the Lister Hospital Stevenage, Watford General Hospital. Peace Hospice Care (Watford), Hospice of St. Francis (Berkhamsted) and Grove House (Rennie Grove Hospice Care) for St Albans Hospital. It is also available over the phone and by email. Home visits can be arranged where necessary.
People affected by cancer living, or receiving hospital treatment, in Hertfordshire.
