By 2020, nearly 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Macmillan wants to ensure that no one faces cancer alone and support is available for people and their families when they need it most. Macmillan provides services to support people with cancer and their loved ones from the moment they’re diagnosed, through their treatment and beyond. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if people just want to talk; Macmillan is there.
In 2015 we spent a record £165.5 million on people affected by cancer, a 9% increase from the year before. AND… we reached 5.8 million people affected by cancer, including more than 778,000 people who were supported by our professionals.
There are currently 39 Macmillan Services posts in Shropshire. They range from Macmillan GP’s, to Clinic Nurses Specialists, to Therapists, Support Managers and Benefit advisors. Some are in funding and others may be out of funding but still undergoing Macmillan training. This is to support the 17,000 people who are currently living with cancer here in Shropshire
