Information and Advice Hub

Practical help and support groups

The monthly (1st Thursday of each month) Information and Advice HUB in Berwick-upon-Tweed has been developed in 2019 as a joint working partnership between Hospicecare North Northumberland and Macmillan Cancer Support to ensure anyone affected by cancer or any type of Life Limiting health issue, has access to professional support. We offer a drop-in service with no appointment necessary for people to consult directly with a Hospicecare Nurse, a Macmillan Co-ordinator, or a Citizens Advice Bureau Advisor. Private consulting rooms are available. We offer a wide range of resources, knowledge of local services, and access to specialist services including advice, information, emotional support, signposting, bereavement support, and welfare benefits advice. APPOINTMENTS CAN BE MADE IN ADVANCE BY TELEPHONING CONTACT NUMBERS.

Group supports: Everybody; Adults; Carers; Patients; Relatives; Children whose relative has cancer; Children with cancer; Young adults affected by cancer; Children with cancer; Young adults with cancer; Parents of Children or Young Adults with cancer; Men; Women; Bisexual; Gay; Lesbian; Transgender and Religious groups.
