Cancer Information Hub
Welcome to the
Cancer Information Hub
Here you will find useful information and links to resources from regional and national organisations, who have expertise in the support and information provision for cancer patients and their families. Our goal is to provide a one-stop shop where you can find links and resources to support you on your cancer journey.
Although every effort is made all the information is current, the partner organisation is responsible for the content of their own website.

Sheffield Cancer Information
We are proud to be based in Sheffield and have used the experience gained from running the face to face Sheffield Cancer Information Hub, funded by Sheffield CCG’s Living with and Beyond Cancer Programme, to inform the links on this page as these are main organisations that we signpost people to.
These organisations have trained and experienced staff to offer you support and advice on a range of subjects, offering practical, financial, emotional and physical support. We also have a wealth of connections to the cancer support landscape in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. Even if you are not based in this area they may still be able to guide, support or signpost to similar services near you.
More support and advice
Cancer screening involves testing apparently healthy people for signs of the disease.
It can save lives by finding cancers at an early stage, or even preventing them. Screening is not the same as the tests a person may have when doctors are diagnosing or treating cancer. Most screening is booked via your GP, if you have concerns you should contact them in the first instance.
