Macmillan Cancer Unit


Adjacent to Leighton Hospital’s Main Entrance



The Macmillan Unit at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust consists of a purpose built chemotherapy suite with the capacity to treat 9 patients at any one time. We have a team of chemotherapy trained nurses and the team is led by the Lead Cancer Nurse Specialist for the Trust.  


Within the Macmillan Unit there is a combination of outpatient facilities including consulting suites, treatment rooms and dedicated therapy and quiet rooms.

Situated upstairs within the Macmillan Cancer Unit is the Cancer Services Team. This team is responsible for the tracking and co-ordination of all patients referred into the hospital with a suspected diagnosis of cancer. The team aims to ensure that patients receive appropriate treatment within the national cancer targets set by the Department of Health. The team consists of a Cancer Manager, Cancer Data Manager and a team of Pathway Co-ordinators.

We also access services at local Trusts for radiotherapy and chemotherapy services for tumour specific requirements.

Also within the Unit is a Macmillan Information Centre which can provide a wide range of information to those affected by cancer. The Information unit can be contacted on the number below.
