That’s why our dedicated Cancer Support Team have been trained by Macmillan Cancer Support, to help give confidential guidance and support during this difficult time.

How we can help

Our Cancer Support Team can help if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. Offering guidance on the financial impact of a cancer diagnosis, from the potential impact on income to everyday expenses like travel to healthcare appointments

  • We’re here to offer practical help and support with managing your finances at every stage from the time you are diagnosed to after treatment.
  • We can give you help and guidance with your personal banking, savings, loans, mortgages and credit cards and in some cases may be able to offer help to lessen the financial impact of cancer.
  • We may be able to help with mortgage payment holidays and current account fees and charges for example, but your individual circumstances will need to be taken into account as this isn't always possible. We understand that your circumstances can change rapidly. If they do, please let us know as we will be better able to help.
