March 2022: We are gradually reopening our Centre with great caution. Meanwhile, we will continue to provide a Telephone Information and Support service for those who would prefer this. Some complementary therapies and activities are restarting. Please see Our Current Services and Activities page for up to date information.
Helping people with cancer is not only about the times they visit hospital – it is about quality of life.
At Cherry Lodge, we work in partnership with hospital and community healthcare services that provide orthodox cancer treatments. We offer additional help – information, support and complementary therapies – which people living with cancer so greatly appreciate.
We have no catchment area: our only criterion for accepting people is that they are able and willing to travel to our Centre or attend an Outreach venue.
All our services are available free of charge to people with cancer, and also to their carers and family members. Our role is truly complementary.
How to Access our Services
Anyone wanting to use the services at Cherry Lodge will, in the first instance, be seen by one of our Macmillan Cancer Information Nurses, who will assess individual needs and concerns. At this stage we will provide detailed information about the services on offer.
People who come to Cherry Lodge to use our services are known as Members. We do not expect anyone to pay for any of our services, although if you do wish to make a donation it will be gratefully received. Being a Member also entitles you to receive our newsletters, to use the library and to access information and details about workshops and seminars.
For an appointment please call Lorraine on 020 8441 7000.
Our information service is a valuable source of medically accurate, up-to-date information on a wide range of cancer-related topics
