Cancer Support Centre
The Mustard Tree Macmillan centre has been created to support people with cancer, their families and carers. It is a ‘drop in’ centre based at Derriford above the Oncology Outpatient Department on Level 3 and is open Monday to Friday from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. 

It is staffed by professionals and trained volunteers many of whom have personal experience of cancer. If you would like additional information about your illness or treatment, would value the opportunity to talk to someone about how you feel, or just need a break from the usual routine we invite you to visit.

Visit the Macmillan Mustard Tree Centre website for more information.

We also have a peer support group set up for those who have completed curative treatment. The contact email to join is
