Cancer information centre FAQs

How do I get a wig voucher?

You can call into the information centre – all we need is your hospital number and then we can complete the paperwork with you and tell you all about the service. You do not need an appointment to collect a wig voucher.

Where can I get travel insurance after my cancer diagnosis?

At the information centre we have up to date information on a variety of companies that will ensure people with pre-existing health conditions. Call in or telephone for guidance.

Am I entitled to any financial support?

There is a benefit and advice service based at Maggie's Manchester and the staff will be able to discuss financial support with you. Please contact Maggie's support centre for an appointment. 0161 641 4848.

My partner has been diagnosed with cancer and I don’t know what support is available – can you help?

In the information centre the staff will be able to support you to identify support services in your local area to offer support to both you and your partner. We also provide a listening service so that you have the opportunity to express your concerns in a quiet and non-clinical environment.
