Purpose of the workshop:
To learn about the work of the West Yorkshire Mobile Cancer Care Unit: a joint project between the cancer charity Hope for Tomorrow and Airedale NHS Foundation Trust.
Mobile Cancer Care Unit (MCCU):
This is a truck (approx. 6 car parking widths) which has been kitted with 4 treatment chairs to provide chemotherapy to people nearer their homes. It is maintained by Hope for Tomorrow and is supported by a Nurses’ Support Vehicle which takes the nursing teams to where the MCCU is going to located for the day e.g. supermarket car park.
Our workshop will tell the story of how the MCCU came to be and how the people involved in its development made this work: changing the way that cancer care can be delivered.
We are running this event in partnership with One HealthTech.
