Have you been diagnosed with cancer?

What people say about ICJ

'Since my appointment I feel so much less anxious and gaining my confidence again'

'I hadn't realised how much things were getting to me. It was so useful to think about these things and then go through it with you.'


Being diagnosed with cancer can be overwhelming and many people don't know where to go for support. East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership and Macmillan Cancer Support want to offer everyone affected by cancer (including families and carers) time with a Link Worker to think about what matters to them, and access to the support they need.

This service is for anyone over 16 affected by cancer at any point on their cancer journey.

Here are some of the things we can offer support with:

  • money or housing worries
  • work
  • caring responsibilities
  • physical concerns
  • emotional concerns

Anyone affected by cancer can contact us directly themselves or they can be referred by someone that supports them. If you've recently had a diagnosis of cancer, you may have received a letter through the post asking you if you would like to use the service.

You can contact us now or at any time in the future.

So, if you have cancer or if you support someone with cancer please get in touch. The number and email below will take you to our Lothian Admin team, who will set up your appointment with an East Lothian ICJ Link Worker.
