Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

Financial support after cancer diagnosis

What we do

Four out of five people living with cancer experience a financial impact and this can average £570 per month, according to research carried out by Macmillan Cancer Support.

This is why the charity works in partnership with the health board to provide information and support for those living with or beyond diagnosis, their families and carers.

Macmillan advisers offer a free and confidential service which includes assessing for possible benefit entitlement, assisting with claims, appealing benefit decisions and even helping with parking Blue Badge applications.
