Treatment closer to home
Our Mobile Support Units have been bringing cancer treatment and support closer to home since 2009. Since then, we’ve treated more than 5,000 patients and delivered nearly 25,000 treatments. Over the years, we’ve saved patients hundreds of thousands of miles in journeys to hospital
We’ve two Units; one specialising in chemotherapy and the other, a Mobile Lymphoedema Clinic, the first in the world. Our Units mean we can treat people in their own communities, saving them long and expensive journeys to hospital.
Our Mobile Support Units go to different locations each day, setting up in local car parks, supermarkets and community venues. We see fewer patients at a time so they don’t have to wait as long. It’s easily accessible and there is plenty of free parking.
Having treatment on board our Units is completely different to going to hospital. It’s less overwhelming, less stressful and altogether quieter. Our small team means patients see the same reassuring faces each time.
Chemotherapy and other treatments
We work with a number of NHS Health Boards to deliver chemotherapy and haematology treatments on board our Mobile Support Units.
What it's like on board our Mobile Support Units
When you come on board you’ll see a friendly face and get a cuppa while you wait for your treatment. We have a television and a toilet on board and there’s a small waiting area so you can bring someone with you.
While you’re waiting you can speak to our Tenovus Cancer Care team about any other ways we can support you. We can offer advice on money matters and benefits, our ‘Callback’ service, and support groups.
Help keep us on the road
Every year we save cancer patients around 45,000 miles of travelling to and from hospital and bring treatment closer to home for people in communities across Wales. If you could help keep our Mobile Support Units running, please make a donation today.
