Improving the Cancer Journey

Cancer doesn't just affect your physical well being it can affect every aspect of your life, from your emotions to your finances. However often people don't know where to turn for support. That's why Glasgow City Council and Macmillan Cancer Support have launched the Improving Cancer Journey Service. Our Service is here to help people affected by cancer get the support they need, whether its financial, emotional, medical or practical.

Improving the Cancer Journey is a service available to all cancer patients within Glasgow. The Service offers cancer patients in Glasgow a Needs Assessment to assess their concerns at significant points in their cancer journey. It provides dedicated support to all people affected by cancer including families and carers.

How can we help?

Once an individual gets in touch we will arrange for them to meet with a dedicated Link Worker who will help them complete a Needs Assessment, a tool used to make sure the individual's needs and concerns are identified. The Link worker will work with the individual to agree the best kind of support they and their family want, putting in place a personalised care plan. Check out our Client Experience

Where can we meet?

A Needs Assessment can be carried out in a variety of convenient locations including: Glasgow Life Libraries, local pharmacy, workplace or home.

We also have outreach locations within Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, along with community venues such as Family Action in Rogerfield and Easterhouse (FARE) and Macmillan @ The Pearce Cafe in Govan.
