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

Overview of Advance Care Planning: Video

Watch our video which gives an overview of Advance Care Planning.

Where appropriate, and if you find it useful, you may like to watch this with your patients to help introduce them to the process of Advance Care Planning and to direct them to our information booklet called Your Life and Your Choices: Plan Ahead. You can order copies of the booklet or download a PDF online at by searching for Your Life and Your Choices.

Macmillan’s team of cancer specialists are also available for people affected by cancer on the Macmillan Support Line to answer questions and provide information and support.

The support line is open Monday–Friday, 9am–8pm on 0808 808 00 00.
