    Welcome to the

    Cancer Information Hub

    The Cancer Information Hub is brought to you by Cavendish Cancer Care and is funded with the kind support of the Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group.

    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.

    Our History

    The Cancer Information Hub has evolved from work at Sheffield Cancer Information Hub whose purpose is to promote the widest access to local and national support services to anyone affected by cancer. Based in the Sheffield city centre indoor market, The Moor Market, it reaches diverse communities and provides information on prevention, symptoms, treatment, support and living with and beyond cancer.

    If you are based in and around Sheffield you can access dedicated local support information via the Sheffield Cancer Information Hub.

    If you are concerned about anything that you may feel is unusual or different, it is important that you make an appointment with your GP to get it checked out.

    Sheffield Cancer Information Hub

    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. More details of these organisations can be found on the Sheffield Cancer Information Hub page. Even if you are not based in this area they may still be able to guide, support or signpost to similar services near you.

    Screening

    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.
