Having access to the right kind of information and support when you are affected by cancer is essential. We have 3 sites across the two hospitals- our main centre is based at Royal Preston Hospital and we have a pod at the front of Preston Hospital and a pod in the entrance of the Euxton Lane entrance of Chorley Hospital. Our centres provide a confidential drop in service in a relaxed informal environment that can be accessed by anyone affected by cancer.

This includes people who:

  • Are living with a cancer diagnosis Have finished treatment
  • Are a relative, carer or friend of someone with cancer
  • Are health and social care professionals
  • Are looking to reduce the risk of cancer

Staffed by Macmillan Information and Support Advisors and volunteers we provide:

  • Literature on all aspects of living with a cancer diagnosis
  • Opportunity to discuss treatments, side effects and other cancer related issues
  • Time to talk and time to listen in a private comfortable quiet room
  • Over the phone advice and information for those not able to access the service in person

We also offer:

  • Links to the clinical teams
  • Access to benefit advice
  • Links to local and national support services and support groups
  • Onward referral to other agencies
  • Cancer awareness outreach sessions in GP practices across the area
