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.
Macmillan projects and resources
We’re always developing new and updated resources for people affected by cancer and those who work with them. It might be helpful to discuss these with your patients, who may find them useful to better understand their diagnosis or treatment, allowing them to feel more in control.
Macmillan GPs, nurses and other health and social care professionals helped over 520,000 people in the UK last year. In these videos, some of Macmillan’s cancer nurse specialists, a physiotherapist, and an oncology dietitian share their experiences of working with Macmillan.
Being physically inactive is becoming the norm with the latest figures telling us that at least one in every three of your adult patients is likely to be insufficiently active for good health.
This week's focus
New Local Cancer Intelligence website
Macmillan and Public Health England’s National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) have been working together to produce an information tool to bring together information on the changing story of cancer in your local area.
Data and insights from Macmillan and NCIN have been combined alongside other key national data to create a Local Cancer Intelligence website, which will be regularly updated. You and your colleagues can use it to identify the needs and priorities for your local area.
We’ve also developed a video walkthrough on YouTube.
On 13 November, the 2014 Macmillan Excellence Awards celebrated Macmillan professionals who’ve exceeded the highest standards expected of them.
