Our MCUs are completely unique in their ability to travel to various sites and with their size, do not take up large amounts of room when parked on treatment location.
Each MCU can visit up to 5 locations each week to give treatments, and locations are carefully chosen by each individual NHS Trust, based on where the patient need is greatest at any given point, hence being subject to change.
