Hope for Tomorrow

In 2007 Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and national cancer charity,
Hope for Tomorrow launched the world's first Mobile Chemotherapy Unit (MCU).
In a unique partnership the MCU is developed, built, owned and maintained by
Hope for Tomorrow and operated by highly trained NHS staff. These well-equipped MCUs allow cancer patients to receive treatment in a restful environment closer to home, saving stressful long distance travel and minimising waiting times, allowing them to spend more time with their loved ones.

The MCU has historically visited the below locations to give treatments (subject to change):

The Dilke Hospital, Forest of Dean (Cinderford)

Cirencester Hospital, Cirencester

Stroud Hospital, Stroud

Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire

The MCU can visit up to 5 locations each week to give treatments, with up to 15 patients benefiting each day. These treatment locations are carefully chosen by the NHS Trust, based on where they can treat the most patients at any given point, hence being subject to change.
