Services and Clinics

Macmillan Cancer Support and George Eliot NHS Trust worked together to develop the Cancer Information and Support Centre.

Highly trained staff and volunteers can listen to your worries and concerns and offer free, confidential support and advice, whether you've been diagnosed with cancer, or you're a family member or carer. Some of the volunteers have personal experience of living with cancer.

We can also put you in touch with counselling services and refer you to other professional or voluntary organisations where appropriate including Psychological Support Services or Therapy Services Oasis. Oasis provides relaxation therapy, hand massage, visualisation and breathing techniques. They also offer advice dealing with stress and anxiety.

We are able to offer emotional support and practical help to anyone who has cancer, their relatives, friends and carers, in a relaxed and confidential environment.

Macmillan information support service can be found opposite Main Reception of George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust. We are open 9-4pm Monday- Friday unless otherwise advertised.
