Hope for Tomorrow
Written by Ed Wellman on 13th October 2015
Shoppers and visitors in Lincoln’s City Square on Tuesday were invited aboard a mobile Chemotherapy Unit.
The new vehicle, funded by ‘Hope for Tomorrow’ and staffed by NHS nurses is one of nine county-based services in the UK which provide cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes.
Elizabeth Murray, formerly a Consultant Oncologist for The United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust, is a volunteer for ‘Hope for Tomorrow’ in Lincolnshire. She spoke to Siren FM’s Ed Wellman about the benefits for patients of the mobile units and the practicalities involved in providing this service in our county, which is one of 9 similar projects across the UK.
