Our mobile chemotherapy unit
In 2017, York Against Cancer was proud to launch Yorkshire’s first mobile chemotherapy unit. The £700,000 mobile treatment centre offers systemic anti-cancer treatments and supportive treatments inside a vehicle, which moves to different locations to give more patients treatment access.
The unit was designed to help those living on the outskirts of York and Scarborough to reduce their travel times.
In its first year and a half, the unit saw more than 1,500 visits, with some patients visiting more than 20 times.
How does the mobile chemotherapy unit work?
The unit travels to outlying areas of York, catering for those who live in more remote areas. Specifically, it covers areas such as:
This helps people save essential time travelling. The unit moves to a different site on the same day each week.
