Completed Developments

Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre

NGS Macmillan Unit

The new £8.9 million NGS Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre will transform cancer services for people across North Derbyshire.  The new centre is planned to be open at Chesterfield Royal Hospital by Spring 2017.

The Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre will combine the current outpatient chemotherapy and day unit services in one purpose-built centre  The new chemotherapy suites will have the space and equipment to treat 25 people at one time, a marked improvement on the current oversubscribed capacity of 8.

Macmillan is working with the Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to improve the lives of people affected by cancer in the region in order to address the challenges faced by a hospital with a reputation for excellent patient care, dedicated staff and volunteers.

Improved facilities at new Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre

The new facility will include:

  • 25 Chemotherapy Chairs and two beds (there are currently eight chairs and no beds at the Hospital). This means many people will no longer have to travel to Sheffield for their treatment and be closer to home.
  • Treatment and care in one location
  • Specialist information and advice service and a Macmillan Information Advice Centre Manager
  • Counseling
  • Complementary therapies, welfare benefits advice, practical support and dietary advice
  • Access to self help and support groups
  • Signposting to the voluntary and community sector for support

As of Winter 2016, the structure is virtually complete and many of the rooms have been sectioned off as work continues on the building’s internal aspects. The video, which you can watch below, takes you inside the unit and gives you a few facts and figures about what has gone into its construction and the fundraising efforts through the Macmillan Appeal to raise £2.5million.
