Macmillan Cancer and Palliative Care Psychology Service

The Macmillan Psychology Service is a service for adult patients, their families or carers who are experiencing complex psychological problems relating to any aspect of the diagnosis or treatment of cancer, or when in the palliative phase.

Our team of Clinical Psychologists and Family Psychotherapists focus exclusively on cancer and palliative care.

We offer evidence-based psychological interventions that aim to reduce psychological distress and to enhance and promote psychological well-being. Our clinicians offer a variety of different therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy, person-centred and family therapy approaches.

We work as part of the multi-disciplinary team and offer consultation, supervision and training to the wider cancer staff team. We provide services to Luton and Dunstable Hospital, Bedford Hospital, community palliative care teams and hospices.

The team's administrative base is in Dunstable and our Psychologists and Psychotherapists see people in various community settings and within their homes in Luton and Bedfordshire. 

The service is part of Bedfordshire Community Health Services (BCHS).
