The Cove Macmillan Support Centre

A place for people affected by cancer to come for information and support.

We know that a cancer diagnosis affects all areas of your life, so we’re here to help you find information and support when you need it. From information about specific types of cancer, treatments and how best to live with it, to support with finances and benefits, diet, exercise, the way you look and even if you just need someone to talk things through with. We can help give you back some feeling of control and help you feel more confident about the future.
The Cove is a purpose-built Macmillan Cancer Support Centre. We’ve got comfy spaces where you can take time out, a friendly cafe, and private rooms for if you prefer somewhere quiet. We also host regular support groups and events throughout the year.

The team at The Cove

The Cove is run by our Macmillan Cancer Centre Manager, Kathryn Radcliffe. Kathryn is a Registered Nurse and an experienced Senior Manager who has managed various clinical cancer services over many years in both the NHS and Independent Sector. Kathryn is available to help assess your needs and concerns, and links closely with your Clinical Nurse Specialist and your wider clinical team to ensure that there is joined-up planning of your care.

Kathryn works alongside two Macmillan Support Officers, Kerenza and Sandra, who are available to meet with you to discuss any problems or concerns that you may have and signpost you to relevant support services, such as Benefits Advice and Look Good Feel Better. We also have a team of fantastic, trained volunteers, some of whom have personal experience of living with cancer.
