Chief executive to lose job in merger

Cancerbackup's chief executive will be among the staff to be made redundant after the charity's merger with Macmillan Cancer Support.

The charities announced last week that they expect to merge in the next six weeks in a bid to streamline and improve their services for cancer patients (Third Sector Online, 11 January).

Cancerbackup, which will continue to run its information services under the name Macmillan Cancerbackup, was unable to confirm the exact number of redundancies.

"The main redundancy is that of our chief executive, Joanne Rule," said a spokeswoman. "There is a commitment to retaining staff, although it has not yet been agreed how the new structure will work."

Cancerbackup will keep its building, although it has yet to be decided which services will be run from there.
