Hope for Tomorrow is a dedicated charity with a single aim: to bring cancer care closer to patients.
Working in partnership with the NHS, it provides state-of-the-art Mobile Chemotherapy Units to bring vital cancer treatment closer to patients, reducing travel, waiting times and the stresses and strains of busy hospitals.
The Charity has ten Units operational in Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wiltshire, London Surrey, Hampshire, East Kent, Lincolnshire, Cornwall, West Suffolk and East Essex. In addition we have 2 reserve vehicle to ensure continuity of service during our maintenance and rebuild schedule.
Being treated closer to home, on a Hope for Tomorrow MCU, reduces travel times, waiting times and parking difficulties which are some of the stresses and strains involved for cancer patients and their carers when treated at a main Oncology Centre. It gives patients and their families more time to live their life outside of cancer.
Mobile Chemotherapy Units can travel five days a week throughout their counties of operation, to five community locations and they have the capacity to treat around 15 to 18 patients a day. Currently ten Mobile Chemotherapy Units are operating in Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, East Kent, Lincolnshire, Cornwall & West Suffolk, East Essex & Royal Marsden.
So far the Units have saved patients - and their carers - over 500,000 miles of travel.
