Macmillan Support Line

You can call the Macmillan Support Line FREE on 0800 808 00 00 (7 days a week, 8am - 8pm).

A diagnosis of cancer can be very difficult to come to terms with.  Many people find it hard to talk to their loved ones about cancer, or to talk about it at all.  The Macmillan Support Line offers the opportunity to chat with an expert, who can help you to find the words you need.  Sometimes, it can really help talking to someone outside of your family and group of friends.

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'

Patient, Lowson / Starling Wards, Richardson Hospital
