New doors are opening for cancer care support in Shropshire as we hand over the extended and refurbished Hamar Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

The centre, which provides counselling and support for people with cancer, has been transformed thanks to the build which we delivered for the Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support in partnership with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund.

The new extension and refurbishment of the centre will allow the Macmillan Cancer Support Service, which provides information and advice to people living with cancer and their loved ones, to have a larger space within the centre. There is also a new quiet room for patients and carers and more facilities for counselling and well-being services provided by the Trust.
