Specialty details

Macmillan Cancer Support and George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust have worked together to develop the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service.

We offer people affected by cancer access to good quality, comprehensive and appropriate information and support. You may have cancer yourself, care for a friend or relative, work as a health professional, or simply want to know more about cancer.

The service is staffed by a Macmillan Information and Support Adviser, supported by trained volunteers. Some of our volunteers have personal experience of living with cancer.
