Make the most of our resources for you and your patients
You might already know about Macmillan’s excellent palliative care services. But did you know that we offer much more besides?
We support people with cancer from diagnosis, through treatment, and increasingly on the way back to health. Our wider team of trained specialists can help with so many things – questions, emotions, money worries, or practical issues like travel insurance or returning to work.
This week's focus
Cancer: Time to Choose
Five years from now half of us will face cancer during our lives
Not everyone with cancer is getting the support they need — and it’s going to get worse as the number of people with cancer soars. We need urgent political action to change this.
We must act now so everyone with cancer is diagnosed early and receives the best possible treatment and support. We must demand health services that support, comfort and protect the dignity of everyone affected. We must also make it possible for each person to die in the place of their choice.
The election is our chance to make sure improving cancer care is a priority for the next government.
