Henry Smith MP backs Macmillan Cancer Support’s coronavirus information hub

Henry Smith MP is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s coronavirus information hub, a comprehensive information and advice service created by Macmillan to provide clear information, advice and support about COVID-19 for people living with cancer, their family and their carers.

Henry said;

“I encourage anyone in Crawley who may be concerned about how COVID-19 may affect them or one of their loved ones to please visit the Macmillan website: www.macmillan.org.uk/coronavirus.

“Macmillan offers amazing support to people affected by cancer. This is why I’ll continue to work with Macmillan Cancer Support to ensure Crawley residents get the right advice and support – please let me know if I may be able to assist.”

Since the outbreak of the virus, Macmillan has seen a stark increase in the number of people contacting their Support Services about coronavirus.

Last week, Macmillan reported that over a quarter of people who contacted them had concerns or questions related to coronavirus. People living with cancer are rightly concerned about how COVID-19 will affect their health, their treatment and care, and their work and finances.

Indeed, the Department of Health & Social Care are now signposting people towards Macmillan’s coronavirus information hub.

Macmillan provides help and support for anyone affected by cancer. For more information about their coronavirus advice please go to: www.macmillan.org.uk/coronavirus.
