Cancer support services £1.6m funding

7th May 2009

Macmillan’s National Cancer Survivorship Initiative is to receive £1.6m funding from the Department of Health.

The charity will be given the money to improve services and support for those living with cancer and pilot new ways of caring for people when they have finished their initial cancer treatment. It will also be used to give healthcare professionals information and training to support people after cancer treatment. Health minister Ann Keen said the government was aware that cancer survivors have a range of physical, psychological and social needs.
