STRUCTURE: A new cancer information service for people affected by or concerned about cancer will be launched by Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust this spring.

The service will provide support, information and practical advice about living and coping with, and beyond, cancer by a team of trained staff and volunteers at sites across both Royal Preston and Chorley and South Ribble hospitals.

Macmillan Cancer has provided funding of £335,000 for the new service and the Rosemere Cancer Foundation has donated £100,000 to build and equip a purpose built Information Centre at the Rosemere Cancer Centre at Royal Preston Hospital, one of the locations from which the new service will operate.
