The Macmillan Centre at East Surrey remains open with staff present 9.30am to 4.30pm each day. Our phone line 01737 304176 will be in use, and our email address firstname.lastname@example.org will be monitored too, so everyone can keep in touch with us during this time.
Please contact the team to arrange any of the services included in the leaflet.
We know that our service users need support more than ever and we must continue to keep everyone safe, so we are limiting numbers for group activities at the centre. Currently available therapies are listed in the leaflet.
If you want to register with us, you can still do that, just give us a call and we'll go through the form or you can request a form to be emailed to you by contacting us at email@example.com.
We will be adding some extra therapies soon, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates on this.
we look forward to seeing you.
The East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Support Centre, based at East Surrey Hospital, opened in January 2016 and was developed through a partnership between Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Centre was designed by experts and people affected by cancer and offers those affected by cancer additional holistic care in a friendly, informal and non-clinical environment. It is open to patients; carers; family members and friends and is a drop-in service, no appointment nor referral is needed.
The Centre is open Monday to Friday, between 9.30am – 4.30pm. Staff and volunteers provide a welcoming atmosphere along with practical advice, emotional support or simply a listening ear, at any stage for those living with cancer.
If you would like to volunteer at the East Surrey Macmillan Cancer Support Centre please contact our centre manager for more information.
Opportunities exist for qualified therapists, counsellors and coaches but we also need support and information volunteers who meet and greet service users, provide a listening ear and signpost to other services if appropriate.
