Whether you have cancer yourself, care for a friend or relative, work as a health professional or simply want to know more about cancer, our professional team are here to help you.

The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service has been developed as a joint venture between Macmillan Cancer, Croydon Health Services, Citizens Advice Centre, South East Cancer Help Centre and people with cancer.

The information centre is designed to help make sure that anyone affected by cancer has free access to good quality information and emotional and practical support.

Opening hours

The centre is open Monday to Friday between 9am-5pm. 

If the centre is closed you can request information using a request form available in the lobby outside the centre or by emailing

Benny Millier is the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Services Manager. You can contact her on: 020 8401 3000 ext. 5744 or 020 8401 3441 or email:


The Centre is situated in Nightingale House. You can find it by walking from the main entrance to the public car park, under the archway, on the left hand side. 

Drop in service

You don’t need an appointment or referral to pick up some information or drop in for a chat. You will find a friendly relaxed atmosphere and the time and space to share you concerns or ask questions.

Outreach Service

An outreach service is available at the Healthy Hub, which is based in Croydon Central Library, Katherine Street. We can see anybody who is affected by cancer, or anyone who would like any cancer information.

Walking for Health in Croydon

Walking for Health in Croydon was adopted by the Macmillan Centre in October 2013. This walk is designed specifically for cancer patients and their families, to aid recovery and to enjoy the outdoors, but all are welcome!

We meet at the Centre on Wednesday at 1pm and Fridays at 11am for a 30 to 45 minute walk.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact the centre.
