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.
