Here at Poole Alcock we support the wonderful Macmillan nurses at Leighton Hospital who provide care and support to cancer sufferers and their families.
Our knowledge of the Macmillan team at Leighton comes from our work with Clients who have received a diagnosis of an asbestos related illness. These illnesses lie dormant for around 40 years after an individual inhales the asbestos fibres and only start to cause symptoms much later in life.
Our Anna Burns, Partner and Head of the Personal Injury Team at Poole Alcock has 15 years experience of helping people to recover compensation from previous employers for the development of these illnesses along with any financial expenses and future financial expenses.
We are therefore well aware of the fantastic work that the Macmillan team do for their patients and our Clients.
It is because of this that we are wanting to help to spread the word about Macmillan’s ‘Catch Your Breath’ events, the next of which is due to take place on 25th November 2021 at the Lion Salt Works, Wincham, Northwich at 1:30pm. These events have started to take place face to face again and are an opportunity for people to meet socially with a Macmillan nurse present to offer any medical advice if needed.

It has been an incredibly difficult 18 months for everyone working within and around the medical profession due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Whilst we are all living in uncertain times, it still remains crucial for anyone to contact their GP to discuss any unusual symptoms that they are experiencing to their lungs or breathing, especially when they are aware of any previous exposure to asbestos.
It is also incredibly important to note that if any of this does relate to you, you are not alone and help is here for you.
