Gloucestershire Mobile Chemotherapy Unit

  • Hope for Tomorrow Mobile Chemotherapy Unit

Our Gloucestershire Mobile Chemotherapy Unit was the first launched in the world in 2007 by Charity Patron Sir Stirling Moss OBE and was named 'Helen' in memory of a dear friend of the Charity Founder, who sadly passed away from cancer.

The Unit can visit up to 5 locations each week to give treatments, and these treatment locations are carefully chosen by the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, based on where they can treat the most patients at any given point, hence being subject to change.

The Unit currently visits the following locations:

  • Cirencester
  • Cinderford
  • Stroud
  • Tewkesbury

The Unit is operated by Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and as with our other Units, is owned and maintained by Hope for Tomorrow.

A Next Generation Mobile Chemotherapy Unit for Gloucestershire...

During her visit to Cheltenham General Hospital in September 2015, HRH the Princess Royal launched our campaign to fundraise for a next generation Mobile Chemotherapy Unit for Gloucestershire, now that 'Helen' has been in operation for coming up to 9 years.

You can help us with our campaign by holding your own fundraising events, undertaking a sponsored challenge or even becoming a volunteer.

Find out more by visiting our Get Involved webpages, or drop us an email to, or alternatively, call us on (01666) 505055.

We look forward to fundraising alongside you!

The biggest thing for patients is that they can get treatment without having to travel to Cheltenham.
