What is a Macmillan nurse?

Macmillan nurses are specialist nurses in cancer treatment and care, supporting people with cancer from the time they are diagnosed.

They offer emotional support and practical advice to people with cancer and their families in the UK and are highly trained in managing pain and other symptoms.
