The Macmillan Information and Support Service is based on the Greenlea Oncology Unit at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and at the Jayne Garforth Macmillan Unit at Calderdale Royal Hospital.
Our support is tailored to the individual needs of the patient/carer, so whatever cancer throws your way, we aim to be right there with you. If we don’t know the answer to your questions, we will find out or refer you on to someone else who can help you.
