Drop-in centre

The Drop-in centre provides information and support to people affected by cancer, at any stage of the illness. It provides a place for people to ask questions or discuss issues face-to-face in a safe and confidential setting. 

Opening hours

Monday-Friday: 9.30 am - 4.30 pm 

The Telephone Helpline (020 3826 2555) is also staffed during opening hours. 

Out of hours and during busy periods, there is an answerphone so please leave a message and we will call you back.

Who may use the Drop-in centre?

Anyone may drop in to the centre. No referral is necessary.

What if I cannot get to the Drop-in centre?

There is a telephone helpline during opening hours. Patients on the wards at Mount Vernon Hospital can ask for a member of the LJMC team to visit them.

A warm welcome awaits callers to the Drop-In Centre. As well as our friendly team of staff (both volunteers and health care professionals), you will also find a library of books and leaflets on all aspects of cancer and its treatments. You can spend as long as you want in the Drop-In Centre.

If you’ve got a question or concern about cancer, please drop in. We’re here to help.


If you have an urgent medical problem following chemotherapy treatment at Mount Vernon Hospital, please ring the Acute Oncology Service (07825 028855). 

For other urgent medical problems, please contact your GP or NHS Direct (0845 4647).
