Patient information and links to other resources

There are many sources of information which you may find helpful.

The Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre produces a number of publications, many of which include information specific to the way in which things are done here at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.

There is also a great deal of excellent information available from other organisations and we have included links to these in this section of our website.

If you cannot find what you need, please don't hesitate to get in touch by dropping in to the LJMC or calling the Telephone Helpline on 020 3826 2555.
