Seniors Section


Our Seniors Captain Mel Hemmings Charity for this year is Macmillan Nurses.
As of October 2017, there were 4,555 Macmillan nurse posts across the UK, both in hospitals and in the community.
All Macmillan nurses are registered with at least five years experience, including two or more years in cancer or palliative care. Some will have completed specialist courses in pain and symptom management, or psychological support, as appropriate.

Most Macmillan nurses work in NHS hospitals or the community. A small number work in hospices and private hospitals, but do not charge for their services.
As specialists, they assess complex needs, give advice to other healthcare professionals and support people with cancer to understand their treatment options.
If you need more general nursing care, other nurses can help. Read more here or "make a donation" ...
