New Car Service for Cancer Patients in North Devon

A new door to door trial service for cancer patients who need to get to North Devon District Hospital (NDDH) for oncology or chemotherapy treatment, and who would struggle to get there, has been launched this week.

The service, which is funded by the North Devon Cancer Care Centre Trust (NDCCCT) and co-ordinated by Go North Devon, will collect patients from the Torridge area on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from the North Devon area on Tuesday and Thursday.

The service will run twice daily to NDDH, arriving at 9.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. and departing at 1.15 p.m. and 5.00 p.m. The VW Caravelle can carry five passengers on each run, and booking is essential.

NDCCCT and Go have worked together for the past seventeen years, helping North Devon cancer patients who needed to get to Exeter on a daily basis for Radiotherapy. However, an NHS funded service is now in place to help patients with these journeys, so the NDCCCT Trustees felt the time was right to investigate new ways to help cancer patients in the area.

There is currently no charge for using the new service, which is funded by NDCCCT from donations and fundraising. James Bonetta, Chairman of NDCCCT says, “Our charity began with the goals of helping cancer patients attend appointments, and offering support to the chemotherapy unit at NDDH. With the new unit opening next year this new service will combine those original aims and, we hope, help many people in the future."

For more information, or to book a seat, please telephone 01271 314332 on Monday to Friday 9.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. (excluding Bank Holidays).
