Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the following clinics are running at a reduced service:

Cancer Services

We have set up an advice line for you and, where applicable, your carers who may have any questions about Coronavirus (COVID-19) that will launch this Monday 6th April.

The number to call is 01246 516183, will be manned from Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm, and is available for you to ask specific questions, concerns and queries you might have about COVID-19 and how it may affect you or your treatment.

The phone will be answered by an experienced cancer nurse who can provide advice and support during this time. It also means that our main number will be free for our teams to answer general queries.

If you are unable to use the helpline or would prefer not to, there is an email address where you can submit your question which is crhft.macmillaninfo@nhs.net and you will receive a written response.
