A team from Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham has been recognised nationally for its work to improve the lives of people in our region who have beaten cancer.
The Survivorship Team, jointly funded by Macmillan and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, was set up just over two years ago in order to help people of all ages through their recovery journeys.
The team focuses on providing support not just in the physical sense, but also offers help with emotional, social, financial and psychological matters too, and is one of just a handful of its kind in the country.
Now, in recognition of its work to improve the lives of hundreds of people from across East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, the team has been shortlisted for a 2014 Macmillan Professionals Award in Team Excellence.
