macmillian-logo-large.pngOur aim is to ensure people affected by cancer receive personalised care and support by:

  • Making certain that people affected by cancer have a meaningful conversation about their needs and what matters to them, in a hospital or community setting. 
  • Linking people to support in their communities, based on their expressed needs.
It’s a cause for celebration that more people than ever are surviving after a cancer diagnosis, but we know the impact of cancer doesn’t suddenly stop when treatment is over.

We are working in partnership across the Cancer Alliance to help improve the experience of people affected by cancer. We want everyone who is diagnosed with cancer to live well after a diagnosis.

This means:

  • Getting your care in a way and place that works for you
  • Care and support designed around you and those close to you
  • Each person is seen as an individual and gets fair access to care

One way we have worked on achieving this goals is through the Macmillan Living With and Beyond Programme. To learn more about the programme, click the link below.
