Macmillan offers digital HOPE course

The HOPE course has proved to be an amazing resource for many people who have gone through cancer – it helps them back on track and teaches coping strategies to deal with the legacy that this illness often leaves behind.

During the current crisis, it’s not possible to offer a face to face course, but Macmillan are now offering a digital version – to register, please follow the link on the flyer here

Covid 19 update

Due to Covid 19 and two members of staff self-isolating, we regret to say that we are unable to offer any face to face support until further notice. 

 
With immediate effect, the Centre will NOT be open for drop in and all our support groups, whether held here at the Centre or other venues, will cease until further notice. 

Anyone needing support can still call us on the following numbers and we’ll do our very best to help – or you can email us on sfccg.macmilancic@nhs.net

We know that these are very worrying times for us all but would like to reassure everyone that we will continue to do our upmost to offer support to anyone affected by cancer. Any further changes and updates will be posted on our Facebook page, on our Twitter feed and the Centre website www.southportmacmillancentre.org.uk

Health and Well Being Event Cancelled

Health and Wellbeing Event cancelled

After much thought, it is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel our Health & Wellbeing Event on Thursday 19th March 2020.

We would like to reassure everyone that this is purely a precautionary measure and our Macmillan Information and Support Centre is still operating as normal and our support groups are still running as usual:

We acknowledge that this is going against current guidance from NHS England but as the welfare of our service users is paramount to us, we felt we should err on the side of caution and cancel the event at this time.

Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre is open for drop-in at 20, Stanley Street, Southport, from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, you can call us on 01704 533024 or email sfccg.macmillancic@nhs.net
