The service is staffed by two Macmillan Health and Wellbeing Professionals and trained Macmillan Information Volunteers, who are available to listen to you and discuss how cancer is affecting your life and signpost you to services which will offer support. Some examples of what people ask are, how can you learn more about the type of cancer you have, how to tell children about a cancer diagnosis, benefits advice, how to care for someone with cancer and much more.
