The heart of the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre is the Drop-in centre. This is a calm, welcoming and non-clinical environment where you can drop in to ask questions, find support or just chat to someone.

A warm welcome awaits callers to the Drop-in centre which is staffed by a friendly team of volunteers and health care professionals. They can also explain the other supportive services available at the LJMC and refer you to these if you wish.

If you’ve got a question or concern about cancer, please drop in. We’re here to help.

COVID-19 update

In order to maintain social distancing, we may need to limit the number of people in the Drop-in centre.

If you are unable to wait, we will be happy to telephone you at your convenience.

The telephone helpline (020 3826 2555) is also staffed during opening hours.

Who may use the drop-in centre?

Anyone may drop in to the LJMC – patients and those who care for them – at any stage of the illness. No referral is necessary.

What if I cannot get to the drop-in centre?

There is a telephone helpline during opening hours. Patients on the wards at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre can ask for a member of the LJMC team to visit them.
