Transforming Macmillan together

Published: 29 June 2023

We want to hear your opinion on how we can deliver the best support for people living with cancer.

Three people are standing outside talking. One person is wearing a Macmillan t-shirt, another is wearing a dark blue top, and the third is wearing a white and blue top and blue headscarf.

Help us shape the future of cancer care.

Developments in treatment and diagnosis mean more of us are living longer with cancer - three million people across the UK in fact. But we are not necessarily living better.

The NHS and cancer workforce are struggling to keep up with growing demand. People with cancer are missing out on the timely care and treatment they need. What’s more, people from deprived areas are more likely to have cancer and ethnically diverse people have a worse experience of cancer care.

That’s not good enough.

We know that as a charity we can’t afford to stand still; we need to evolve so we can seize every chance to make a difference. Our mission has never been more important, and we will not settle for anything other than the best possible support for people with cancer.

Macmillan volunteers are giving their time generously to our charity and the people we support. This gives them a unique perspective. And that’s why we would love to hear their opinion on how we can deliver the best possible support for people living with cancer. We’re asking not only volunteers, but everyone, including people with lived experience of cancer, health and social care professionals, people in work associated with cancer, and Macmillan supporters.

Please give us your views on these questions about cancer care, and help us ensure we are ready to meet the needs of people with cancer in the future.
