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

If you have any questions, or just want to talk to someone, the team is here to help.

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


Getting in touch

For enquiries about appointments at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, a special helpline has been set up which is staffed between 8.00am and 5.30pm: 020 3826 2666

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