The BBC has reported the warning from Macmillan Cancer Support that those caring for a loved one with cancer are going unsupported, with some receiving no support at all:

Julie Crossley, a specialist Clinical Negligence Lawyer at Ashtons Legal comments:

“We deal with cancer cases where there has been a delay in diagnosis and we are aware how the illness alone affects not only the patient, but those caring for them and their extended families. We try to ensure that apart from dealing with the litigation, the clients are advised of their rights to additional benefits and support if these are not already in place. The Macmillian Nurses provide not only support for the families, but can also assist with helping them complete the paperwork involved in obtaining additional help and support. This is vital for patients and carers who are going through this very difficult process.”
