Southport and Formby cancer recovery programme shortlisted for Macmillan Excellence award

A Southport and Formby based Macmillan cancer recovery programme has been shortlisted for a prestigious award recognising their inspirational work supporting people affected by cancer in the area. Southport and Formby Cancer Recovery Programme, based at Southport and Formby CCG; Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre, was nominated by colleagues in the Integration Excellence Award category, which recognises exciting new initiatives, products and services. This category's winners have all improved the quality and experience of care for people affected by cancer. The Southport and Formby Cancer Recovery Programme was established to support people with cancer during their recovery. It aims to improve physical and mental health and alleviate the feelings of isolation that can often follow the end of treatment. The hub of the service is the Southport Macmillan Information and Support Centre, but the team comprises members from various health and social care organisations who work together seamlessly. Patients finishing treatment receive a specially designed information pack detailing the support they can access, such as Health and Wellbeing events, Move More sessions and a whole host of support groups. Helen Jones, Macmillan Cancer Information Centre Manager, said:- "The programme has made it more routine for people with cancer to come to us. Macmillan is all about giving the best possible support to people affected by cancer and, as a team, that's where our hearts lie too." A surprise celebrity guest will be hosting the awards ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, on Thursday, 17 November 2016, where the winners will be announced for the 1st time. The awards, which are now in their 5th year are a perfect opportunity for us to recognise and thank pioneering teams and individuals who deliver the highest standards of care for people affected by cancer. In 2015 more than 300 Macmillan professionals, as well as representatives from Macmillan and leading healthcare institutions attended the awards ceremony. No 1 should face cancer alone. For support, information or if you have any questions, call Macmillan Cancer Support free on:- 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm) or visit:- Macmillan.Org.UK.
