Maggie's centre in Sutton

If you or someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer, we can help

While we cannot see visitors in the centre at present due to Coronovirus, you can still ring or email for help, advice, or just to have a chat and tell us how you are feeling, especially if you are feeling anxious, alone or worried about treatment changes.
 
You can ring our centre on 0203 982 3141 or email us 
 
Another way for us to support you is online. You can read all of our blogs on how to cope with self-isolation and reach other people who know exactly what you are going through - a bit like at the kitchen table. Just visit our website
 
Maggie's is needed now more than ever and we will continue to be here for everyone with cancer and their family and friends. 

We are here to support everyone with cancer and their family and friends in the best way we can through this really difficult time. 

We will have benefits advisors, psychologists and cancer support specialists on hand. We are following the highest level of hygiene to keep everyone safe.

We are not holding group support sessions (including nutrition, relaxation and gentle exercise sessions) in line with the Government guidelines.

You can find more support online or you can ring us on 020 3982 3141.

We are here with you.

Maggie’s at The Royal Marsden provides free cancer support for people with cancer and their family and friends, further enhancing The Royal Marsden’s world-leading treatment and care. 

With no need for a referral, patients as well as friends and relatives of patients can drop in for support with anything from managing stress to money worries. The centre provides a breathing space away from the hospital where visitors can meet people who understand what they’re going through or just take a quiet moment to reflect.

The services on offer are designed to further enhance the psychological support already provided at The Royal Marsden, and our Psychological Support and Pastoral Care team, which is funded by The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, is working closely with Maggie’s to ensure our patients are accessing the most appropriate support to meet their needs.

For referrals to The Royal Marsden’s Psychological Care service, please call 020 7808 2777 (Chelsea) or 020 8661 3006 (Sutton). Maggie's at The Royal Marsden is open Monday - Friday, 9-5pm.
