First Macmillan Information Centre opens in Wales

  • Comment
The first Macmillan Information Centre in Wales has been officially opened at Maelor Hospital in Wrexham.

The£150,000 centre – a joint venture with the Shooting Star Appeal and North Wales NHS Trust – will provide cancer patients and their families with information, advice and support.

As well as providing patients with information on their condition, centre staff will give advice on changes to lifestyle and assist with practical matters, such as finances and benefits.

The centre contains a library, internet access and a quiet room for patients and families to meet with the information manager for confidential discussions.

Cath Lindley, general manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, said: ‘Whatever stage of the cancer journey people are on, receiving the correct information about their diagnosis, treatment and care is vitally important.

‘The centre is already having a positive impact on the lives of cancer patients and their families in North East Wales and we hope to help as many people as possible over the coming weeks, months and years,’ she added.
