Discovering cancer services near you

 
 

The Cancer Care Map team are always on the lookout for local and national services offering care, support and practical help for people living with cancer across the UK.  Here’s a quick look at just a few of the growing number of services on the map.

First up it's Berwick's Cancer Cars, an organisation that provides free transport to cancer patients who live in Berwick upon Tweed to most major hospitals in the area including Freeman Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne, Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, and Wansbeck Hospital in Northumberland. 

Moving south to Peterborough, we have Little Miracles: a charity that supports families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions such as cancer. Little Miracles provides families access to advice, support and care. The charity assists families by helping them with low cost holidays, bereavement and counselling support, befriending scheme, workshops and courses.

In Barnet, the Cherry Lodge Cancer Care Centre provides information, support groups, complementary therapies and psychological to people affected by cancer including families and carers. The service provides welfare and benefit advice and also offers a befriending service to provide practical and emotional support.
