Help and support
The Macmillan Information and Support Centre at King’s College Hospital provides a welcoming and confidential drop-in service for anyone affected by cancer.
We can help you with the following:
- access to patient information (talking to children, specific cancer type booklets, finance, diet and exercise, and many more)
- Macmillan grant applications
- benefit advice and appointments
- general advice
- signposting to further information
- someone to talk to
You can also find out more information regarding some of the above services on our health and wellbeing information and support page.
We are on the King’s hospital campus, in the Cicely Saunders Institute (next to Bessemer Wing). We are clearly marked on the Map of King’s College Hospital.
The Getting here section has details of how to get to the hospital, including by public transport.
We offer advice over the phone about any practical concerns and the services which run from the Macmillan Centre. You can call us on 020 3299 5228 from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours you can leave a voicemail. This includes bank (public) holidays, when we are closed.
Please note Macmillan Centre staff are not clinical members of the team. If you have a clinical concern please contact your specialist nurse directly.
