Health and social care professionals

Resources, information and support to help health and social care professionals in their role.

Macmillan Funded Courses

In addition to the resources available online, our geographical L&D teams also provide free face to face courses and events for both Macmillan and non Macmillan Health and Social Care professionals who care for people affected by cancer on a more local level. Please find links below to the regional prospectuses which you can download as a PDF file or just browse online.

To enquire about course places, email your local L&D team who will be happy to answer any questions about the events.

Whilst we are more than happy for you to attend courses that are outside your geographical area, as a charity, we wouldn't be able to contribute towards any travel or expenses associated with attending our free courses.
