An Integrated Support and Information Centre in a Large U.K. Cancer Centre Established in 1993 and Replicated in More Than 60 Units Across the United Kingdom and Australia

By E.J. Maher

Abstract

Established in 1993 after a 2-year consultation between professionals and cancer patients, the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre (ljmc) has been a catalyst for change in the United Kingdom. The Centre began with a small core staff in a purpose-built building next to a cancer centre, networking with outreach workers in 12 surrounding hospitals, with a mission to improve information, communication, and support for cancer patients. Since 1996, the ljmc model has been adopted and developed by the charity Macmillan Cancer Support and has been spread to more than 60 units across the United Kingdom and Australia
