Coronavirus COVID-19

During this present outbreak of COVID-19, we very much regret that we have had to close the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre to all face-to-face services.

As you will understand, this decision has not been taken lightly and we sincerely apologise that we are not able to deliver the support and information services that you may need whilst undergoing treatment for cancer.

The telephone helpline is staffed from Monday-Friday (9.30am-4.30pm): 020 3826 2555

We will respond to messages left on the answerphone but please be patient as we are very short-staffed.


 

For answers to clinical questions, we recommend you speak to your Clinical Nurse Specialist.

If at any time during your treatment you become unwell you must contact the 24-hour Acute Oncology Service: 07825 028855
