We would like to reassure everyone that we will continue to be OPEN DURING LOCKDOWN #3 at the local cancer information and support centre at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
We are available on the phone, by email and by MS Teams virtual meeting, and in person, if requested.
The only change being that we only meet one person face-to-face if they have pre-booked with us. Our walk-in service is temporarily suspended to protect the health and wellbeing of service users and staff.
Our working hours are Mon-Thurs, 9am-4pm, and Fri, 9am-2pm.
You can ring our centre on 0118 322 8700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
In response to the lockdown, Macmillan Cancer Support has set up new initiatives:
- SafeFit - online support for physical and mental health
- Wellbeing coaching

Experienced staff and trained volunteers can listen to your worries and concerns and offer free, confidential support and advice, whether you have been diagnosed with cancer or you are a family member or carer.
We can also put you in touch with the Macmillan cancer rehabilitation services and refer you to other professional or voluntary organisations where approriate, eg Look Good Feel Better beauty therapy workshops and benefits advisers.
We are able to offer emotional support and practical help to anyone who has cancer, their relatives, friends and carers in a relaxed and confidential environment.
You are welcome to come and browse through our library of resources, including books, CDs and DVDs, on all aspects of cancer, cancer prevention and leading a healthy lifestyle. We also offer guided internet access.
Some of our resouces are available in different languages and braille and are suitable for people with learning difficulties.
