 Our Cancer Support Team offers customers guidance to help to alleviate the money worries that can be associated with a cancer diagnosis, from the potential impact on income, to everyday costs like transport to and from healthcare appointments.

Our team can provide:
• Help to assess and manage changes to your finances, at every stage from diagnosis to after treatment.
• Practical guidance on personal banking, savings, loans, mortgages and credit cards.

In some cases we can help lessen the financial impact of cancer. For example, we may be able to help with mortgage payment holidays and current account charges. Your individual circumstances will need to be taken into account as this isn't always possible.
