Information and support centres

You will find us in the Robert Horrell Macmillan Centre on the Peterborough City Hospital site. We provide a wellbeing, support and information service for anyone affected by cancer. Our specialist staff are available to offer advice and a listening ear. We provide a confidential, informal and non-clinical environment for people to drop in and access a wide range of quality and accurate cancer information which complements information given by health professionals. We provide a range of support services at the Centre as well as an environment where people can meet others in a similar situation, so no one feels isolated or alone. This support available includes: help with managing fatigue, sleep, anxiety, memory, building confidence and hot flushes; emotional support; relaxation; art & crafts; support with healthy lifestyles; and support to access welfare benefits advice. We also run Look Good Feel Better make-up and skin care sessions and offer help with exploring wig alternatives. We are part of the North West Anglia Foundation Trust and our range of services include the Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Centres in the our hospitals.
