Cancer care

For newly diagnosed cancer patients

Finding out that you have cancer can be a scary time, but there are many people ready to support you.

It is likely that most of your initial active treatment will be in a hospital setting.  However, the staff at this surgery are here to help ensure that you can find the appropriate care and help you need, when you need it.

Being diagnosed with cancer means having to deal with issues and situations that may worry you and cause uncertainty.

Macmillan Cancer Support provides helpful advice and support for you and your family.

They can be contacted for free on 0808 808 00 00, 7 days a week, 8am to 8pm.

Details and meeting dates of the local Macmillan Support Group in Ely can be found on the Macmillan website here.

The Ely Cancer Community Group can also be found on their facebook page here.
