So glad your Mum has a plan for the Radiotherapy with lots of offers to get her there.
Sounds like she's got some great support. Take Care Gilly x
Hi there Bumblegirl.
I have noticed a few posts from you, your Mum is one lucky lady to have you supporting her.
Regarding transport, as others have said it very much depends on individual circumstances and different areas. I live only 10mins drive from Christie Satelite Centre where i had rads and they have a small car park just for use by rads patients (they give you a code). Other people at the time were using various transport options.
1) Mile for Smiles - Volunteer driver services (arranged by local volunteer bureau) where you pay petrol only to volunteer drivers. Users have to register.
2) Ambulance arranged using a reference from GP. (This can mean a lot of wating about.)
3) Transport service arranged with support from Macmillan Nurse who can also apply for grants for specific needs. (I guess this was another volunteer service).
Wishing your Mum well in her treatment. Take Care Gilly x
My treatment was in 2008 and hospital transport was only offered for certain situations. I was lucky with the chemo as OH took me for that but for rads I had to get 3 busses each way for 6 weeks of rads. The cost of the weekly bus pass was about £13 then but is quite a bit more now. I didn't mind getting the bus except for the cost of course lol. My friends OH is having treatment for stomach cancer and had to make his own way to hospital for chemo/rads until he collapsed on the train and now gets hospital transport. Perhaps it depends on the area. I had my treatment at the Marsden in Sutton. All the bestX
