Macmillan Nurses

Macmillan nurses are nurse specialists who provide advice and support to people with cancer both in hospital and at home. They help control symptoms and can help at any stage of cancer. They often liaise between patients, relatives, GPs and the hospital to improve quality of life for the whole family during a stressful time. Some Macmillan nurses are qualified counsellors and can help to support close relatives and provide bereavement counselling.
