Advice and support
The Macmillan website has useful information about the different kinds of head and neck cancers, the tests, how tumours are graded and the treatment options.
You can contact or visit our Cancer wellbeing centre at Colchester Hospital or the John Le Vay centre at Ipswich Hospital – relaxed environments offering various services before, during and after your treatment.
Patients who have been affected by a cancer diagnosis may be able to apply for a Macmillan Grant to support with household or travel costs.
Some patients who are palliative may be eligible for a DS1500 payment, your clinician can advise if you fit the criteria.
All patients who have a diagnosis of cancer are entitled to free prescriptions.
