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
Announcing the 2014 Macmillan Professional Excellence Award winners
On 13 November, the 2014 Macmillan Excellence Awards celebrated Macmillan professionals who’ve exceeded the highest standards expected of them.
The glittering awards ceremony was hosted by Olympic champion swimmer Mark Foster and saw 400 Macmillan professionals gather together to recognise the outstanding achievements of their peers.
This year, eight outstanding individuals and three teams from across the UK were awarded a Macmillan Professional Excellence Award – each one selected from 83 initial nominations. The award categories were Service Improvement, Innovation, Integration, and Team excellence. For the first time, a Macmillan professional was also recognised with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.
