Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service

The service is based at The County Hospital, within the Macmillan Renton Unit.

Who we are

Macmillan Cancer Support and Wye Valley NHS Trust have worked together to develop the Macmillan Cancer information and support service in the Macmillan Renton Unit.

We offer people affected by cancer access to good quality, comprehensive and appropriate information and support. You may have cancer yourself, care for a friend or relative, work as a health professional, or simply want to know more about cancer.

The service is staffed by a Macmillan Information and Support Advisor, supported by trained volunteers. 

What we offer

We provide free information, support and practical advice for anyone affected by cancer. We can offer you:

  • Confidential one-to-one support
  • Information on all aspects of living cancer and treatments available
  • Information on diet and nutrition
  • Guided internet access
  • Access to relevant support and information
  • Weekly relaxation group (please call to book 01432 355444 ext 5459)

Some of our resources are available in different languages and formats, and are suitable for people with special needs.

What people ask

  • How can I learn more about the type of cancer I have?
  • Who can I speak to about financial advice?
  • How can I help someone who has cancer?
  • Do you have details about local and national support groups?
  • I am finishing treatment - what happens now?

Just drop in

If you have any concerns about cancer then please drop by for a chat; you don't need to make an appointment. We are here to help from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays).

If you can't visit the Macmillan Renton Unit we have a telephone information service and can arrange to call you at home.
