Macmillan Cancer Support and the North Highland Cancer Information and Support Centre (NHCISC) based in Thurso, is hoping to understand the needs of people who have either had cancer, supported someone with cancer or referred or recommended someone to the NHCISC.

The Thurso centre also wants to hear from people who have been unable to access cancer support in the north of Scotland. This may be due to a variety of reasons but NHCISC needs to know why this has not been possible.
