If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, we're here to help. We would review patients who are concerned about Cancer as a possible diagnosis.
Your GP is able to perform screening tests and investigations. If your symptoms indicate an urgent review is required, you will be referred under a Two-week wait pathway.
If you are looking for more support after your diagnosis, please visit the local Cancer Wellbeing Centre, The Robert Horrell Macmillan Centre located behind Peterborough City Hospital (Car park H).
Their friendly team offers a well-being, support, and information service for anyone affected by cancer. The support includes help with managing fatigue, sleep, anxiety, memory, building confidence and hot flushes; emotional support; relaxation; art & crafts; support with healthy lifestyles; and support to access welfare benefits advice.
We also run Look Good Feel Better make-up and skincare sessions and offer help with exploring wig alternatives. Their specialist staff is available to offer advice and a listening ear. They provide a confidential, informal and non-clinical environment for people to DROP IN and access a wide range of quality and accurate cancer information which complements information given by health professionals.
