Local support groups - Macmillan Cancer Support

Local groups are for anyone affected by cancer. You can share as little or as much as you like. You do not have to talk about anything you do not want do. Some people find it takes a few visits before they feel comfortable sharing.

Meetings sometimes include activities, a social event or a talk from a guest speaker. Most groups are free. Some may charge for tea and biscuits or welcome donations for the complementary therapies or counselling they offer.

  

Cancer Support UK: Supporting People with Cancer, During and After Treatment

We provide practical and emotional support to people with cancer, during and after the treatment period.

NOT SURE ABOUT SOMETHING

You can always get in touch with our care navigators at the surgery (previously known as receptionists). They maybe be able to guide you to the right place or person and if they think you need to speak to one of our social link workers/social prescribers, or one of our nurses they can arrange this too.
