Information and support centres

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Macmillan Centre at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has made changes to the way we work. We are here, and we are based in the Lower Ground Floor Outpatients Atrium (between Lift Bank C and D)—follow the signage to the Lower Ground Floor Outpatients Department to find us. We are currently encouraging people to contact us by phone rather than visit us, but if you are coming in for an appointment we can see you with social distancing measures in place. Only one person may visit at a time—this is for your protection and ours, and we will ask you to wear a face covering. We can provide cancer information, emotional and confidential one-to-one support to anyone affected by cancer. We usually offer complementary therapies and counselling, but our therapy services have stopped until it is safe for us to resume. Because of the different ways we are now working, as well as contacting us by phone for support (9am–5pm weekdays) or coming by if you are in the hospital for an appointment, we are using a YouTube channel to promote your wellbeing at home. Our new YouTube channel is designed with you in mind. We have collaborated with cancer specialists, our complementary therapists, and our hospital charity CW+ to bring you a variety of wellbeing topics. We are also offering chair-based exercises to help keep you active if you are at home and shielding.
