This is a new service for everyone with a diagnosis of cancer in your area. Some of the ways the support worker can help include: Helping you find answers to the questions you have about your cancer and treatment; Putting you in touch with specialist teams who can help you with money and benefits; Helping with emotional concerns; Connecting you with well-being services and support near you. The cancer support worker can offer support for non-medical concerns you may have. Based on these concerns, the support worker will create a plan of care with you, and can signpost you to trusted information and services which may be helpful. The cancer support worker is not a registered nurse but works closely with your local Macmillan community cancer nurse specialist team. For clinical concerns, the support worker will have access to the healthcare team who are treating you and can connect you to this team if required. The support worker is employed by NHS Highland, and adheres to NHS Highland employee confidentiality policies.
