UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre

The Macmillan Cancer Centre provides clinic, chemotherapy, and imaging services for cancer patients. Sarcoma outpatient appointments take place on the first floor; chemotherapy daycare takes place on the second floor and diagnostic facilities (blood tests, scans etc) takes place on the lower ground floor. Teenagers and young adults are seen and treated on the third floor. Patients can also use the roof garden and are very welcome to use the Macmillan Support and Information Service on a drop in basis or via a booked appointment.

The Macmillan Support and Information Service is a welcoming and quiet space to feel listened to, understood and informed. The service is available for any patient, carer, friend or family member at any stage of their cancer journey. You can make an appointment at the service by calling 020 3447 8663 or emailing support&information@uclh.nhs.uk or you can 'drop-in' any time between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

To visit the Macmillan Support and Information Service you will come via the 'Welcome desk' which is on the right hand side of the entrance of the Cancer Centre. Here you will be greeted by a member of staff or volunteer who can tell you about the services provided. The entrance to the Support and Information Centre is just by the Welcome desk. Once inside you will find yourself in the 'Living Room'. This is a comfortable, welcoming, quite space where you can drop in and speak to an experienced team of professional staff and volunteers. You may find it helpful to share concerns with one of the team members, ask questions or simply sit quietly. You will also be able to sit round a beautiful table to talk and share your experiences with other patients and families if you wish.
