Our Macmillan nurses, doctors and other health professionals up and down the country will continue to support people living with cancer whilst doing all they can to help alleviate the immense strain put on the NHS by Coronavirus.
For people living with cancer during the coronavirus pandemic, it is a particularly anxious time. More people than ever need our support with a variety of issues, such as clinical advice on cancer treatments and how to reduce the risk of contracting Coronavirus when chemotherapy and other cancer treatments can dramatically lower people’s immunity.
We are committed to making sure our vital support services continue to be available for much needed clinical advice and emotional support during this difficult time. Anyone worried about the impact of Coronavirus on their treatment and care can contact the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 00 00 or visit www.macmillan.org.uk for further advice and support.
