The Information and Support Centre is for everyone affected by a diagnosis of cancer.  Perhaps you are a patient, a carer, a relative or friend of someone who has cancer.
We are here to help you find the information, support and advice that will help you to cope – before diagnosis, on diagnosis, through treatment and afterwards.

The Centre is staffed by a Macmillan healthcare professional, supported by Volunteers. You can ‘drop-in’ any time during opening hours (shown below) or leave a message on the answering machine when closed.

We are here to answer any questions you may have and make sure you have access to the right services.
