North Cumbria Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service

Information and support centres

There is currently no face to face service at The West Cumberland Hospital. However, we can support you remotely from The Cumberland Infirmary. The drop-in Macmillan Pod in the atrium of the Cumberland Infirmary provides information and support to people affected by cancer across North Cumbria in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We offer telephone and face to face advice regarding your cancer diagnosis and treatment. We can signpost you to local services that aim to support you through your treatment. We can talk about your needs and any issues you are having and can advise you of services that are there to help. Our trained volunteers can provide a friendly face and a listening ear.

We offer:

  • Cancer information materials
  • Financial support
  • Information
  • Support from Health Professionals
  • Telephone helpline
  • Benefits Advice
  • Look Good, Feel Better
  • Self Help & Support Groups
  • Signposting to other services
