Living with cancer in Dundee?

If you are living in Dundee and have been affected by cancer, our Macmillan Improving the Cancer Journey (ICJ) service is here to help you live as well as possible.

The Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide practical, personal and emotional support to people living with cancer, their carers and families.  We want to ensure that everyone living with and beyond cancer can live as well and as independently as possible.

Cancer doesn’t just affect your physical wellbeing, it can impact on every aspect of your life and the lives of those around you. But knowing where to turn for support isn’t always easy.

We can meet with you to discuss your needs, make referrals to services on your behalf and help you access tailored information and support. You can talk to us about how you feel, get help with money and housing worries or help at home – whatever matters most to you.

We will also be able to give you details of organisations who can provide support, or contact them on your behalf. We also provide support for family members and carers.

To get in touch with us or find out more about how we can help, contact 01382 433340 or improving.cancerjourney@dundeecity.gov.uk. You can also text YES along with your name to 07860 077337.

“I made contact with the Dundee ICJ early this year when I was in a very dark place. I had been left devastated by my husband's death and one month later I was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Both tragic and emotional events caused me so much heartache, grief, anxiety, but I was fortunate to be visited at home by you and given help and advice.  It has been an upward struggle, but your expertise in knowing in which direction to point me has made it all worthwhile.  As suggested, I am now attending Maggie’s and I have also joined one of your Move More Walking Groups.  With your help I can now face the future and my 'new life'.” Dundee ICJ service user
