Situation

The NHS generally excels when it comes to cancer diagnosis and treatment but there are some areas when it simply cannot provide the support people need. For example, people often struggle to process information during hospital appointments, and can get confused and worried by inappropriate information from other sources such as the Internet. Also in hospital environments, it is rarely possible to find the time and space to explore what cancer means to an individual and their family.

Solution

Maggie’s offer a place for people to turn to for help with any of the problems, large or small, associated with living with cancer. We support people at any stage of the cancer journey, with a dedicated team of professional staff on hand to help overcome fear, manage stress and anxiety, and get the most out of medical treatment. This support is delivered from an eye-catching yet homely building, designed to comfort and reassure people at a time of great vulnerability.
