A big thank you to Macmil­lan nurses

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

LAST Tues­day (May 12) was In­ter­na­tional Nurses Day, and 2015 marks 40 years since the very first Macmil­lan nurse was ap­pointed.

Macmil­lan nurses help peo­ple af­fected by can­cer, their fam­i­lies and car­ers make in­formed de­ci­sions about treat­ment and guide them through the maze of dif­fer­ent ser­vices. They also of­fer emo­tional sup­port and help peo­ple with can­cer deal with their symptoms and pain.

So I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank all Macmil­lan nurses in Buck­ing­hamshire, past and present, for their much-needed work in help­ing to en­sure that no one faces can­cer alone.

Since putting in place our first nurse, Macmil­lan’s role has grown and we now also pro­vide ad­vice and fi­nan­cial help to peo­ple af­fected by can­cer through our sup­port line, as well as work­ing with part­ners to im­prove can­cer ser­vices.
