If someone has or has had cancer they are protected by law from discrimination at work because of their cancer.
Talking to your patients about the impact cancer may have on their work can help them have informed conversations with their employer about their needs.
Our updated Work Support Route Guides can help you talk about work and signpost to support, including Macmillan’s Work Support Service. Available Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm on 0808 808 0000, this provides information and guidance on talking to employers, negotiating adjustments at work, sick pay and taking time off. It can also refer people with more complex needs to one-off legal advice.
