Jon Cruddas MP is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s coronavirus information hub, calling it a “great initiative”. This comprehensive information and advice was created by the Macmillan to provide clear information, advice and support about coronavirus for people living with cancer, their family and their carers.

Since the outbreak of the virus, Macmillan has seen a stark increase in the number of people contacting their Support Services about coronavirus. Last week, Macmillan reported that over a quarter of people who contacted them had concerns or questions related to coronavirus. People living with cancer are rightly concerned about how coronavirus will affect their health, their treatment and care, and their work and finances.

The Department for Health and Social Care are now signposting people towards Macmillan’s coronavirus information hub. The service has also been welcomed by Jon Cruddas MP, who said:

Jon Cruddas MP said: “I encourage all my constituents in Dagenham and Rainham who are concerned about how coronavirus may affect them or one of their loved ones, to please visit the Macmillan website: https://www.macmillan.org.uk/coronavirus

“Macmillan offers amazing support to people affected by cancer. This is why I will continue to work with Macmillan Cancer Support campaign to ensure local people get the right advice and support, and would welcome hearing from more constituents living with cancer on the impact their coronavirus is having on them.”
