The very first Hope for Tomorrow Mobile Chemotherapy Unit (MCU) was launched in Gloucestershire 10 years ago, heralding a world first.

Since the launch of the first MCU back in 2007 we have learned a lot about cancer care and the provision and operation of specialist mobile units around the country.  As the providers of mobile cancer care in England, we have an in-depth understanding of the needs of NHS Oncology Departments, their patients and staff.

Working in a unique partnership with the NHS, we provides state-of-the-art Mobile Chemotherapy Units to bring vital cancer care closer to patients, reducing travel, waiting times and the stresses and strains of busy hospitals.

 

We are so proud of what we’ve achieved over the last decade and our commitment and dedication will continue well into the future.

10 YEARS OF MOBILE CHEMOTHERAPY…

10 MCUs on the road

Over 170,000 hours of travel and waiting time saved for patients

Over 2 million miles of travel saved for patients

As Christine Mills MBE our founder says ‘none of this work would have been achieved without the commitment of our passionate and dedicated supporters and the team at Hope for Tomorrow, our Trustees, Patrons and Ambassadors. We hope that their support will help us keep the wheels turning long into the future ’

 

“The friendliness of the staff and drivers who have made my visits comfortable and have instilled a sense of “community” for those of us undergoing treatment. Also the fact that the bus ‘comes to me’ rather than me having to travel. There is nothing I can think of to improve this fantastic service which has saved me a two hour round trip into to the hospital for both treatment and weekly line care. The staff and facilities are great, I can’t speak of them highly enough”
