About the service
The centre is available for anyone who is affected by cancer whether that is the patient receiving treatment, carers or the worried well.
The centre provides free information whether by booklets, email, telephone conversations or information prescriptions based on a drop in basis so no appointment is necessary.
We also supply a comprehensive benefits advice service provided by citizens advice bureau and the dept of work and pensions. We also run survivorship programmes to help people cope with life after their cancer treatment and are currently in the process of developing complementary therapy services.
You can drop in Mon-Fri 9am- 4pm (except bank holidays).
Northamptonshire Cancer Partnership Group
The Northamptonshire Cancer Partnership consists of a group of volunteers who provide a voice for users of the cancer services we provide at NGH. It is not a self-help group, but we are patients, carers and health professionals who work together to improve cancer services.
Our role is to listen to patients and carers views and ensure that these views are taken into account when services are planned and developed. We have regular meetings that are held every 8 weeks in Northampton.
What we do
- - Take part in committees that decide future cancer services
- - Work with health professionals to inform patients' needs and design information for patients
- - Get involved in decisions about the design of facilities and buildings.
- - Research patients' views and experiences
We're looking for new members to fill these important roles
