Supporting Cancer Patients in Tameside (Tameside Macmillan Unit)

(Lancashire)

The project will benefit people with cancer. Care provided in the new purpose built Tameside Macmillan Unit based at Tameside & Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust is of high standard but we are in need of a vital piece of equipment to identify patients with breathing difficulties.

Our goals:

  • The award will be used to purchase a Spirometer. This would help in a quick identification of patients with breathing difficulties, which can be an early sign of cancer related condition; improve diagnosis and treatment.
  • The award would offer help directly to patients in the Community with cancer and make their experience easier.
  • The Community award will help in funding a portable Spirometer to enhance service provided to cancer related patients.

    Good luck to you all with this project. Every McMillan centre should be equipped with the necessary tools to detect cancer. My dad has lung cancer that has spread but we are all fighting this terible disease with him as best we can. Early detection is vital if we are going to beat cancer. Keep smiling, stay positive. Xx

    Speaking from personal experience … The care and treatment I have received under Tameside hospital has been truly amazing, the staff are kind , caring and compassionate. Having the new tameside Macmillan unit has definitely improved the journey for those requiring treatment by making I more accessible for the local community. Such a wonderful place.
