Macmillan cancer support bus rolls into CUH

23 May 2017
Free specialist cancer support and information is coming to Addenbrooke’s Hospital this week (Friday 26 May).

Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile service will park at the rear of the hospital concourse, near the ATC car park, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer questions from the public.

The Macmillan cancer support bus is coming to Addenbrooke'sThe team encourages anyone with concerns to stop by, whether you’re living with cancer, care for someone who is or just have questions about the disease.

"Cancer can impact all aspects of your life, we’re here to provide information on issues ranging from how to manage the side effects of treatment to money worries," Wendy Marchant, Cancer Information Specialist on the unit, explained.

"We also want to remind people of the support services on offer all year-round here at Addenbrooke’s."

Staff from the Macmillan Information and Support Service at Addenbrooke’s Hospital will join the mobile team for the day. In addition, the Macmillan Welfare Benefits Advisers who visit the hospital weekly will be on hand to offer financial advice.

"The specialists joining us are happy to chat through whatever’s on your mind, so stop by and ask us anything – no appointment needed!" Wendy continued.

Leah Melabianaki, who works at the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, said: "It’s important people affected by cancer can easily access information and support so they can focus on what’s most important – their health.

"We’re thrilled the bus is coming to the hospital. I hope the team reach lots of people on Friday and help us raise awareness of the ongoing support on offer at the hospital."

If you’re unable to visit the bus but have questions about cancer, you can visit the Macmillan Information and Support Service located in Oncology, Haematology & Radiotherapy Outpatients (Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4.30pm).

Last year, Macmillan Cancer Support’s mobile information service came to the South and East regions for a total of 138 days reaching 13,073 people, including 2,022 people in Cambridgeshire.
