Welcome to ҹɫֱ Yorkshire

Whatever kind of cancer, and whatever stage you’re at – we're here for you.

Our centre is a space for being together or for a moment alone, for getting going again or for meeting people who just get it.

All our cancer support specialists have expert knowledge about cancer and treatment, and many are NHS-trained.

The kettle's already on – just come in.

Amanda Procter

Centre:

Maggie's Yorkshire

Position:

Centre Head

I look after the running of the centre and make sure my team and I are providing the best possible cancer support.

I have over 20 years’ experience as a nurse. I specialised in Cancer Nursing as an Upper Gastrointestinal Clinical Nurse Specialist, and I became the Lead Cancer Nurse for a busy Teaching Hospital. I joined Maggie’s when the centre opened in Yorkshire in 2019.

I’m here to listen, to help you talk things over and to find the information and support that’s right for you and your family.

Centre:

Maggie's Yorkshire

Position:

Counselling Psychologist

I have been a Counselling Psychologist for more than 15 years, and I joined Maggie’s Yorkshire in 2021.

I can help if things are getting on top of you, if you're scared, worried or feeling down.

We can talk about things in a safe and supportive space, and you can see me in private, in a group or with your family.

My background is as a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) in oncology. I have worked as a CNS in several tumour areas, including prostate, renal, bladder and penile, and more recently as a melanoma and skin cancer specialist. I joined Maggie’s Yorkshire when it opened in 2019.

I give one-to-one information and support and will guide you through the parts of our support that are most appropriate to you. I also run many of our support groups, workshops, and courses.

I’m here to listen – just come in.

I give one-to-one information and support and will guide you through the parts of our support that are most appropriate to you. I also run many of our support groups, workshops, and courses.

I can help you to understand what you’re entitled to and help with practical things like parking permits and extra money you may be able to claim.

I’ll help you to fill out all the necessary forms, support you through the application process and can even put everything in the post for you.

Designed for you

Our beautiful centre was built in 2019. Drawing upon ҹɫֱ philosophy and the belief that great design can help people feel better, ҹɫֱ Yorkshire uses several 'healthy' materials and energy-saving techniques to create spaces that are perfect for the delivery of our cancer support.
