During this present outbreak of COVID-19, we very much regret that we have had to close the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre to all face-to-face services.

As you will understand, this decision has not been taken lightly and we sincerely apologise that we are not able to deliver the support and information services that you may need whilst undergoing treatment for cancer.

LJMC services status

Drop-in centre: This is closed to visitors. However, the LJMC telephone helpline is staffed from Monday-Friday (9.30am-4.30pm): 020 3826 2555.
If you have any questions, or just want to talk to someone, the team is here to help.
We will respond to messages left on the answerphone but please be patient as we are very short-staffed.

Counselling: All appointments are being conducted over the telephone.

Complementary therapy: One-to-one touch therapies and relaxation classes have been suspended. However, we are offering guided relaxation telephone appointments. Also see our page on relaxation resources.

Benefits advice: You can continue to call the Helpline or the Macmillan Support Line (see below). Click here for further information.

Look Good Feel Better and headwear workshops: Sessions are suspended but online services are available.

We regret we are unable to confirm when other services will resume and thank you for your patience at this time.
