Mobile Cancer Care Unit celebrates first anniversary

25 April 2022


Our Mobile Cancer Care Unit (MCCU) has now been supporting patients in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area for just over a year.

The MCCU was introduced as part of the Transforming Cancer Community Care project, which aims to enable cancer patients to access care and treatment closer to home, in a calm and safe environment, so they don’t need to travel so far or come into hospital.

The MCCU is owned and maintained by Hope for Tomorrow (HfT), a charity which runs similar units across the country, and staffed by nurses from the Haematology and Oncology Units at the James Paget.

To mark the first anniversary of the unit, the MCCU team have produced this short video which explains how the service works - and also records the thoughts of some of the patients who use it.
