Radiotherapy Appointments

The radiotherapy service normally leaves each morning from all parts of the County to reach Cork at noon. The hospital accommodates those people travelling with Cancer Connect to be seen each day between 12.00 noon and 1.30pm for Radiotherapy Treatment.

This is significant, as the appointments are scheduled for the same time each day, thus alleviating the challenge of having to make different appointment times for each day travelling.
our service run five days a week for every week

Chemotherapy Appointments

People requiring Chemotherapy, or related treatments such as Doctor’s Appointments, Scans, Blood Tests etc. are taken to Cork by car as their appointments can vary and may necessitate a number of visits, often to different hospital locations, within the one trip.

Chemotherapy trips are organised on a ‘one to one’ basis. The appointment times are set by the hospitals and duration varies. Therefore there is a dedicated Driver assigned to each Chemotherapy Journey.

Volunteer as a driver?

The key to the service is the many people who volunteer and drive the vehicles for free to Cork City hospitals. The drivers usual level of commitment is to be available to drive one day in the month if possible.

cancer connect is totally dependent on voluntary contributions and donations

To this end, Cancer Connect is indebted to the many people who are supporting the project since its inception. As the demand for the service grows so too will the need for further fundraising to offset the costs of operations and fuel, etc.

Funding Donations are always welcome

Please ring +353 27 52727

planning ahead to deal with increase in service demand

A number of significant developments are planned over the coming year which should help. The fact that the service has grown so quickly over the past few years demonstrates the need for such a service.
For instance, it is planned to extend the services to include areas not already being serviced, for example the North Eastern part of the County from Mitchelstown west to Charleville and east to Youghal.
