Macmillan Information and Support Service

The South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust is committed to ensuring that people affected by cancer have access to high quality information and support. Working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support we have developed the Macmillan Information and Support Service to ensure this is the case.

This service offers information and support to all those affected by cancer, from those with concerns relating to diagnosis to those who just wish to know more about how to reduce their risk.

Please follow the link on the right hand side of the page to find out more about the range of information and supports available.It is staffed by an experienced Macmillan professional and volunteers who are on hand to give any advice and help necessary. Although based at the Breast & Endocrine Centre on the Ulster Hospital site, this service welcomes all those living within the South Eastern Trust area.

A drop-in service is open at the centre on Wednesday mornings from 9.30am – 12.00noon and on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2.00pm – 4.00pm (bank holidays excluded). People are welcome to call in anytime, no appointment necessary.

There is also an information zone (Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm). It holds a selection of high quality information in a variety of different formats and people are welcome to visit the area and help themselves to whatever information they require.  Smaller information zones can be found in the Outpatient Departments within Lagan Valley, Ulster and Ards Community Hospitals and once again people are welcome to visit these areas and help themselves to the information they need.

The service also provides a programme of community based supportive sessions covering a range of the issues affecting those living with and beyond cancer. For more information on these sessions please click on the link ‘ courses available on the right hand side of the page. The Service Manager is happy to direct people and their families to those sessions which they may find most useful.
