Navigators assist patients and their advocates, GPs or carers by answering questions, helping with appointment bookings and accessing local support services. They support patients across the full treatment pathway, now including during radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments. They can also provide emotional support and help to find support provided by other organisations, such as charities and a patient’s local authority. They are part of the multidisciplinary team supporting individual patients, and ensuring joined-up care.

The Macmillan cancer navigators are the first and single point of contact for all questions and queries. They will listen to you, establish what needs to happen, assess who else needs to be involved and take responsibility for ensuring the right outcome. The navigators work closely with the clinical nurse specialist (CNS) teams, so if someone affected by cancer calls with a clinical question, the navigators ensure that a CNS returns their call.

The Macmillan cancer navigators will help guide each person with cancer through their health service journey from detection, to diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

They are delivering on Macmillan’s commitment to ensuring that no one should face cancer alone.
