We appreciate that during times of prolonged treatment a person's financial position can alter radically. Often it is better to seek advice before taking a course of action as this may affect future entitlement to benefits etc.
If you are not sure whether you are entitiled to a benefit or any other finanical support or need help and advice, why not make a confidential appointment with our Benefits Advisor, Denise Martin.
Denise is able to offer appointments within the Centre and can also organise to visit you on the Ward or Chemotherapy Outpatients, should this be necessary. In addition, Denise can offer a telephone appointment if preferred.
The Benefits Advisor is able to access a range of Grants from Macmillan and other organisations for those patients who are experiencing hardship as a result of their illness including help with travel costs if required.
Many of these Grants are means tested but if you feel we can be of help, please discuss confidentially with a member of the Information & Support staff or with our Benefits Advisor.
