The Centre is excellent. When you walk through the doors you can feel the calm and everyone always has a smile. From the bottom of my heart thank you to each and every one of you.
As soon as you walk into the Centre you can feel the calming and peaceful atmosphere. Everyone was very helpful, compassionate and supportive and I felt that I could have approached any of the staff for help or advice. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to have had the benefit of the Centre’s help and support.
I feel the Centre does a wonderful job in meeting the needs of anyone going through a very difficult time, and I can only express my thanks to everyone concerned.
I found the Centre most helpful in coping with the problems around my husbands illness. I would just like to say many thanks for all the help you have given me and my family.
I was very pleased with the way I was welcomed. Made to feel that I counted for something, that I and my opinions were valid. I have had only good experiences here and count my blessing for the Centre and thank everyone who helped me.
All the staff I met throughout my visits were very courteous and friendly. The Centre gives out a feeling of relaxing atmosphere and friendliness. A very caring Centre, it was like having your own family with you.
I was so impressed with the Centre and the staff, they make you feel at ease. The surroundings were marvellous, I will recommend it to anyone.
I cannot fault any of the advice, help and care I received from all the staff. They have made my life so much better.

I now feel I can cope. Your help and care have been wonderful, I feel I can move on with the support of my family and friends.
Macmillan Wellbeing Centre in the News!
Staff at the Centre were recently aproached by the BBC who are making a documentary about our NHS. A meeting was set up here and 2 of our clients and 2 volunteers from ‘Being There’ were interviewed by Eric Knowles (yes – the antiques expert!), about their experiences of going through cancer and the NHS.
Everyone was invited to share experiences of their illness from diagnosis onwards. This included everything from treatment, care in hospital, people they met along the way and the impact of cancer on their families.
The programme was shown on Friday 8th July at 9.30am – Be quick and find it on Catch-Up TV while you can!!
Macmillan MQEM Award
We are proud to have held on to the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark which is reviewed every three years. The MQEM award recognises how the Centre looks and feels to visitors and to the people who work there. It recognises the range of services that are delivered, how those services are delivered, what people gain from using the Centre, and people’s experience of being a client
We were again awarded a really high “Very Good” overall score in the assessment and can continue to display the MQEM plaque and to use the logo (at the bottom of this screen) on our stationery.
We’ve been awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark at the Macmillan Wellbeing Centre. This award was developed in collaboration with more than 400 people living with cancer, who helped to shape its criteria.
The Macmillan QEM recognises that the Macmillan Wellbeing Centre provides a welcoming and comfortable environment for people with cancer. It also acknowledges that we respect our visitors’ privacy, we treat you with dignity and that our facilities will help improve your well-being.
