Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis Service
The Macmillan Beyond Diagnosis Service, run in partnership with Self Help UK, provides practical and emotional support to people affected by cancer. The service is available to people living in Nottingham, Mansfield, Ashfield, and Newark and Sherwood. It is delivered by a team of specially trained volunteers who provide confidential one-to-one support.
Trained volunteers offer emotional support which may include a chat over a cup of tea or over the phone, or practical support such as help with shopping or going out to a cafe.
We work closely with clinical teams to ensure you are well supported throughout your cancer journey. Once details are received, we will respond within three working days to arrange a visit. Our next visit will be to introduce you to a volunteer.
Our volunteers attend specific training and complete a DBS criminal records check.
Please contact us for more information or to make a referral.
