Macmillian Cancer Information & Support Service
The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service is for anyone affected by cancer in Bolton. We work in partnership with Bolton Hospice, Bolton People Affected by Cancer, Macmillan Cancer Support and NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group.
The Macmillan Cancer Information & Support Service has three centres based across Bolton; Royal Bolton Hospital, Bolton One and Giles House at Bolton Hospice. We provide information and support on all aspects of cancer care, whether people need information about reducing the risk of cancer, early detection, diagnosis, treatment or adjusting to life after a cancer diagnosis.
Cancer is one of the toughest fights most of us will ever have to face. No one should face it alone. We offer a warm friendly, safe environment for people affected by cancer, their carer, relative and friends, to discuss any concerns they may have.
This includes information and advice about
- Treatments, side-effects and care
- Skin care & Make Up Masterclasses
- Emotional and practical support available
- How to access benefits and financial advice
- Life after treatment
- Walking Groups
We also have a Macmillan Benefits Adviser who can assist people affected by cancer with checking they are receiving the correct income, help with applying for health related benefits, accessing charitable grants and applying for tax benefits.
