East Dunbartonshire Improving the Cancer Journey

Practical help and support groups

Cancer doesn't just affect your physical wellbeing: it impacts upon every aspect of your life. We want to ensure everyone in East Dunbartonshire who has been diagnosed with cancer can easily access all the support they need after diagnosis, as soon as they need it. We have joined forces with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide that support to enable them to live as well and as independently as possible. Our Improving the Cancer Journey (ICJ) is a one-stop-shop service to co-ordinate support, whether that's physical, emotional, practical or financial. The service is a partnership between East Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership, Macmillan Cancer Support and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde.

The ICJ service can provide support over the telephone, video calls and by meeting face to face at local venues and other outreach locations. Please telephone us on 0141 232 8256 or email or complete our online referral form via our webpage below and a member of our team will get in touch. East Dun ICJ is happy to support anyone over the age of 16 years old who has a cancer diagnosis, their carers or family members.
