17th July 2017 - Islwyn MP calls for extra support for mobile cancer care units

Islwyn MP calls for extra support for mobile cancer care unitsThe MP for Islwyn, Chris Evans, has written to the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board calling for extra support for Tenovus Cancer Care Mobile Support Units.

Mr Evans made the request after paying a visit to a Tenovus Mobile Support Unit parked at Blackwood Gate Retail Park. The Tenovus Mobile Support Units offer a range of cancer treatment including chemotherapy, lymphoedema treatment and counselling services. 

Tenovus Cancer Care launched their first Mobile Support Unit in 2009, and have since provided nearly 25,000 treatments to over 5,000 patients. They have two units but are seeking to expand their fleet to offer more treatments across Wales. Their aim is to bring treatment ‘closer to home’ for those with cancer and their families by parking in a different location across Wales each day.

Mr Evans said: ‘I was very impressed by Tenovus and their mobile cancer support unit. The last thing those suffering as a result of cancer want is to travel miles and miles to get the treatment and support they need.

‘Tenovus bring cancer care directly into communities, so that thousands of people can get treatment much closer to home than if they had to go to hospital. Wales can and should lead the way by giving extra support to projects like this.’

Anyone diagnosed with cancer who would like advice and support can get in touch with Tenovus on 0808 808 1010 or visit their website www.tenovuscancercare.org.uk/
