Bringing cancer treatment closer to patients

Cancer treatment can be emotional, time consuming and often needs to take place over long periods. Hope for Tomorrow is a charity dedicated to reducing the stress of cancer care by bringing it closer to NHS patients. We build and provide mobile cancer care units to NHS trusts. The treatment units drive out to patients’ communities rather than patients having to make long and often stressful journeys to hospital for their cancer care – making a big difference to them at a difficult time.

Hope for Tomorrow cancer care units drive out to patients’ communities to provide local treatment.

Our latest patient feedback shows that, on average, for each treatment, patients save two-and-a-half hours, 20 travel miles, and £6 on parking. With treatment lasting several months and sometimes years, the time and financial savings can be considerable. Seventy-one percent of patients said they can tolerate their treatment more easily on a mobile cancer care unit, while 47% felt that they were more likely to complete their full course of treatment.

Last year, our units allowed the NHS to provide over 26,000 treatments across 41 locations in England.

Inside a Hope for Tomorrow mobile cancer care unit

In 2007 Hope for Tomorrow launched the world’s first ever mobile cancer care unit to bring vital cancer care closer to patients. We won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category in 2016. The award is the UK’s highest accolade for business success, and was made in recognition of our achievements since our founder, Christine Mills MBE, set up Hope for Tomorrow in 2003. Today we provide 14 mobile cancer care units and 13 nurse support vehicles to 11 NHS trusts.
