Macmillan Information and Support Centres in our hospitals

What we do

The Macmillan Information and Support Centres in Stratford and Warwick hospitals can offer you information about all aspects of cancer, including diagnosis, treatment, side effects, practical advice about equipment, a listening ear and much more.

We can put you in touch with sources of support like financial/ benefits advice, and psychological support, as well as district nurse and specialist palliative care services in the community where this is appropriate. We can help you understand how healthcare systems work.

You can drop into the Centre if you are attending for an appointment but you may find it more convenient to telephone or email us. Leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible. We are also offering virtual appointments for those who prefer face-to-face contact from the comfort of home.

Although support groups, complementary therapies and other face-to-face opportunities for patients are still limited at the moment, virtual opportunities are featured in the monthly newsletters which you can find below.
