Caithness Cancer Support Worker
The NHS Highland/Macmillan Person Centred Care Project aims to enhance support for all people affected by cancer from diagnosis onwards, through offering the service of cancer support workers. We have cancer support workers employed throughout the Highlands until June 2021.
The role of a cancer support worker is to offer support to you and your family, for non-medical concerns you may have. You will be offered an initial assessment and based on this a plan of care will be created. There are a lot of resources that you may not be aware of, and the support worker can guide you to such resources.
Your plan of care will be seen only by the NHS staff involved in your care, such as your GP and cancer specialist team. More information can be found here.
