Macmillan Improving the Cancer Journey Service

Being diagnosed with cancer can be overwhelming and many people don't know where to go for support. If you are living in the Lothians and have been affected by cancer, our Improving the Cancer Journey service is here to help you live as well as possible.

An appointment with the Improving the Cancer Journey practitioner gives a person the time to discuss their concerns and think about 'what matters to them'. The service is here to help people affected by cancer (including family members and carers) access the right support at any point on their cancer journey.

Here are some of the things we can offer support with:

  • Money or housing worries
  • Work
  • Caring responsibilities
  • Physical concerns
  • Emotional Concerns

If you would like to find out more about how we can help or to book an appointment, please contact us:
