Macmillan nurses provide treatment and care to patients in hospital and in their homes. Some Macmillan nurses are also specialists in certain types of cancer, such as breast cancer and lung cancer.

Macmillan nurses work within the National Health Service and patients do not pay for them. 

They are funded by Macmillan Cancer Relief for the first three years, and then by the NHS.
