Our cancer experts
We have cancer specialists across the whole organisation who bring their expertise to a broad range of roles. These include clinical and creative teams, who give people living with or affected by cancer the support they need, when they need it most. These are some of the Macmillan cancer experts doing whatever it takes for people living with cancer.
Macmillan nurses are specialists in cancer care. They work in the community, as well as in hospitals and hospices. Macmillan nurses can support you through your cancer experience, and help you understand your cancer diagnosis and treatment options.

High quality information is vital for people affected by cancer. Our cancer experts aim to provide people with the cancer information they need on the topics that most concern them.
We produce information on cancer types, tests and treatments, and information that supports people affected by cancer, with the practical impacts of cancer diagnosis on their work, finances and relationships.
You can browse the web pages in our cancer information and support section. You can also use our personal guide to get information tailored to your situation. Most of the information on our website is also available in printed booklets and leaflets. You can order these free of charge from be.Macmillan.
