Mobile information and support service

Questions about cancer? We offer free information and support locally in England, Wales and Scotland – find your nearest bus below.

Everyone is welcome to use the service. Whether you have a cancer diagnosis, have a friend or relative affected by cancer, or are worried about cancer in any way at all, there are lots of ways that Macmillan can support you - medically, financially, emotionally and practically.

A dedicated mobile team of highly-qualified Macmillan professionals travel across the UK on a fleet of six big green Macmillan buses: Basil, Bertie, Beryl, Betty, Bronwen and Dougie.

The buses park up at lots of public places, from markets to outside shopping centres and libraries.

The team also man Macmillan information stands indoors in public places like shopping centres, hospitals, libraries and exhibitions, and visit places of worship, community groups and workplaces, even shows and festivals.

    Wherever the mobile service is, our team of trained radiographers, dietitians and financial experts are there to talk to you in confidence, for as long as you need, to open up all the Macmillan services on offer. Or, you can pick up leaflets to take away with you.

    The mobile team can help you with:

    • Screening and what to look out for, for example signs and symptoms
    • Different cancers, their treatments and side effects 
    • How cancer affects your life, for example: finances or employment 
    • Talking about your cancer, or talking to someone with cancer 
    • Being there for someone with cancer, or the support available locally
    • Survivorship and recurrence

    A Macmillan staff member sits at an information stand in Boots, there are lots of leaflets and cancer information booklets on the table.
