Managing cancer in the workplace

Macmillan logo

More than 100,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer in the UK each year.  There are currently more than 700,000 people of working age living with a cancer diagnosis and many, many more people in work who have some connection to cancer via their family and circle of friends.

This 2 hour session hosted by Macmillan and Civil Service Local focuses on:

  • The impacts cancer can have on the workplace
  • The specific issues for the employee and their family
  • Good practice in the workplace particularly in respect to difficult conversations and handling emotions.

Many people with cancer continue to work after or even through their treatment and employers play an important role in supporting people.  There are challenges at the time of diagnosis, during treatment, at the time of returning to work and afterwards.  This session / coffee morning provides a much needed opportunity for delegates to reflect generally about the key issues surrounding this topic and network in a relaxing environment.
