Macmillan Cancer Unit

We care for around 2,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients and their families each year in our Macmillan Cancer Care Unit. The Unit is made up of the Lawrence Ward, Galton Unit, an Information Centre, and a high-specification seminar and videoconferencing room. We also provide a tranquil garden dedicated to patients, carers and visitors.
We take a holistic, personalised approach to each patient, providing high quality clinical care and supporting them and their families with complementary therapy, advice and support.
Clinical support is delivered by consultant oncologists, haematology nurses, and chemotherapy nurses working alongside a team of administrators and volunteers. Our Macmillan Positive Living Team, made up of social workers, dieticians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and clinical nurse specialists, offers patients a range of complementary therapy and support for their overall wellbeing.
Lawrence Ward is a bright, natural light-filled inpatient facility with private rooms and bedded bays dedicated to looking after our haematology and oncology patients.
The Galton Day Unit provides chemotherapy, supported by our pharmacy team who work closely with us to provide timely delivery of chemotherapy drugs.
