Four in five line managers are not trained in supporting people with long term conditions

More than four in five (87%) line managers are not given any training on how to support people with long term conditions including cancer, according to new research by Macmillan Cancer Support.

A YouGov survey of 1,010 line managers also revealed a misconception, a quarter (26%) thought making reasonable adjustments to allow someone with cancer to keep working would be difficult. However over two thirds (69%) of those who had had to make reasonable adjustments said it was easy to do.
