Cancer Connect

Cancer Connect is a free, flexible and confidential transport service to Cork hospitals from West Cork for people receiving cancer treatments (radiotherapy, chemotherapy etc.).  The service runs from Castletownbere through Bantry and Goleen through Skibbereen to various Cork hospitals every day (Monday to Friday) at times to suit passengers.

It is provided totally as a voluntary service by a team of Volunteer Drivers and is administered by West Cork Rural Transport.

 

Radiotherapy Service

Two eight seater vehicles are used to provide the services and both are driven by Voluntary Drivers. The service is normally to Cork University Hospital and the Hospital has facilitated Cancer Connect Passengers with an appointment times of between 12 noon and 1.30pm approx thus minimising delays as far as possible.

 

Chemotherapy Service

This service is provided each day (Monday to Friday) to the various Cork Hospitals. Similar to the Radiotherapy Service it is supported by Voluntary Drivers who drive their own cars. The Chemotherapy Service is provided on a ‘one to one’ basis as the appointments generally tend to take longer and the times of appointment can vary.

For details of any of the services or on becoming a Voluntary Driver one may contact Cancer Connect at West Cork Rural Transport Office
