The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service operate across both hospital sites. At the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital you can find the service at the Hamar Help and Support Centre. At the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, the service is located in the Therapies department next to the ReHabitat shop. The service is staffed by two Macmillan professionals and supported by trained volunteers. They are able to offer cancer information materials, support, local information, signposting to other services to anyone who has been affected by cancer, in a safe and confidential environment. If you have a cancer diagnosis, are worried about cancer or are visiting on behalf of a friend or relative we can provide information that covers the cancer journey, including pre-diagnosis, diagnosis and treatments, living with and beyond cancer, palliative and end of life care. We can refer to the Macmillan Welfare Rights Service, complementary therapies, counselling and signpost to other local agencies and support groups. If you need someone to talk to we can give you the time you need to listen. Being affected by a cancer diagnosis can affect so many areas of your life and we are here to support you.
