Here are some quotes from our clients that have been affected by cancer diagnosis.
Beatson Cancer Charity’s Specialist Health and Work Service supports people who are affected by cancer, and their families, to plan for and manage the impact cancer can have on their employment. Most employers show genuine empathy during challenging times and can offer much-needed support. However, a cancer diagnosis can bring many unique challenges. By working collaboratively with employers we can enhance the level of understanding, support and specialist cancer knowledge available.
Working in partnership, our team of Specialist Practitioners can provide advice and support across a range of issues as well as self-management techniques and return-to-work planning that meets the needs of both employers and employees.

We also offer supportive information sessions to employers based on our "We're with You at Work" employers toolkit. These are bespoke to the needs of each employer with the aim of helping raise awareness and develop best practice when supporting employees with cancer.
This work has been so worthwhile and it is hoped that it will go towards improving the experiences of workers across the whole of Scotland when they have received the news of a cancer diagnosis.Charity Partner
Companies now have an opportunity to really deliver for their employees when they’re fighting cancer. Don’t hide behind polices. Do the right thing. Make sure you’re there for your people and you’ll get long term rewards.Stuart - Carer
Employers sometimes don’t understand the emotional impact a cancer diagnosis can have on you. I felt useless and needed to work and be part of the workplace and enjoy the banter with my colleagues.Alec
