Macmillan Cancer Support
More people are living with cancer than ever before, and often they and their carers have complex needs, including practical, personal, emotional and financial. For many, cancer can be a long term condition. Macmillan is there from diagnosis to support people to find their best way through.
Macmillan is implementing innovative large-scale partnership system change programmes ensuring people living with cancer receive the best possible support from diagnosis, through to living with cancer and/or end of life.
We are striving to use a place based approach to build the conditions so that everyone can access the right support to enable to them live well and independently as possible after a cancer diagnosis. With Local Authority partners, health, wider stakeholders and people living with cancer we are exploring how to utilise the learning and potential service solutions to ensure sustainability and application across other long term conditions.
