NGS Macmillan Unit Chesterfield

We opened the NGS Macmillan Unit in Chesterfield on 19 June 2017. The National Garden Scheme generously donated £1.5 million towards the build. The unit is a state of the art, custom designed building.

The NGS Macmillan Unit Chesterfield.Cancer patients can access treatment from a wide range of outpatient services, including:

  • chemotherapy for people affected by solid tumour (breast, renal, prostate, colorectal and lung)
  • chemotherapy for haematology conditions
  • supportive treatments for people affected by cancer
  • all outpatient activity for haematology, including some diagnostic tests such as bone marrow aspirations
  • all oncology follow-up for people affected by lung, colorectal, urology and breast cancer
  • all respiratory clinics, including some non-cancer work such as COPD, home oxygen and asthma
  • all supportive care clinics.

Please note, due to COVID-19, the unit is currently offering telephone appointments to speak to centre staff and the Welfare and Benefits and Psychology service.

All face-to-face services are temporarily suspended. The centre will re-start the below free services when Government guidelines allow:

  • ‘Look Good Feel Better’ skin care and makeup workshops for women
  • wig fitting services provided by Trendco
  • Headstrong provide a service which can advise on head ware, hats, scarves and scalp care
  • Moving Forward courses for breast cancer patients
  • on-site one to one clinical psychology for patients
  • information and support service for people with advanced cancer who have dependent children. This includes helping parents access trust charitable funds to purchase a wide range of age appropriate resources
  • Holistic Needs Assessments 
  • complementary therapies including Hypnotherapy, Reiki and Reflexology.
