Your cancer care
Everyone affected by cancer should receive care with dignity and respect. And to help people know what care they’re entitled to and how they can improve their experience, we’ve created a new leaflet called Your cancer care.
This leaflet provides information on what people with cancer and their carers should expect. For example, being acknowledged if in urgent need, as well as the right to privacy and a say in their treatment. It also provides information on ways people could become more involved, such as providing feedback and discussing their needs and concerns with professionals.
Macmillan nurse, Emma Elliot, was involved in creating it. She says:
'This leaflet is a really helpful guide for those diagnosed. Patients have been involved in its development, making it a true reflection of what people want to know.'
This leaflet can be ordered from our website and is available in Macmillan information centres. It’ll also be provided in some care settings and will be given to people when they’re diagnosed.
