Lanarkshire Cancer Care Trust (LCCT) is a voluntary organisation managed by a board of trustees who’s aims and objectives are to provide support for cancer sufferers and their families. LCCT offers patients and their carers living in the NHS Lanarkshire area free transport to
|hospitals for life-saving treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy ;|
|specialist clinic appointments for follow-up consultations;|
|complimentary and alternative therapies centres promoting better health and wellbeing; and|
|day care facilities.|
All LCCT drivers (with over 100 registered) give their time voluntarily and LCCT’s valuable service currently relies on donations and fundraising to meet the costs of nominal mileage claims. An average of 80 patients are transported to clinics and hospitals on a daily basis. LCCT volunteer drivers help to reduce the stress and anxiety facing patients by providing a reliable, friendly, confidential and supportive service.
Lanarkshire Cancer Care Trust provides a driver service (cars and drivers) for cancer patients who do not have transport of their own and/or who find it difficult to cope with prolonged ambulance transport. If you live within the NHS Lanarkshire area and you would like our help then please contact us on 01698 355137.
