Cancer centre will be at heart of community
PLANS have been unveiled to open a community cancer centre in one of the most deprived areas of Dundee.
“There is also a need for routine use of holistic needs assessment to connect people to the right support and services for them.
‘‘This needs to be able to be accessed within local communities, using the Dundee Macmillan improving cancer journey (ICJ) team as the vehicle.”
A spokeswoman for cancer chariuty Maggie’s said: “We are delighted people with cancer in Dundee will have access to more help, especially those from the Ardler area.
“We believe a new Macmillan facility will perfectly complement the essential support and expert advice the people of Dundee and Tayside already find at the Maggie’s Centre at Ninewells Hospital.”
The cafe adjoining the Ardler Complex is the proposed location for a community cancer centre.
