Transport is, without a doubt, the most important part of all that we do to help cancer patients and their carers.

 

Most cancer treatments and specialist consultations take place in Glasgow (mainly the new Beatson at Gartnavel) or other places which are equally inaccessible to those without their own transport.

 

North Ayrshire Cancer Care provides an essential service to cancer patients, free of charge, paid for by donations from the community. This includes those with their own transport who would find it stressful finding a place to park and trying to make their way to the right department.

NACC can arrange transport to and from:

 

The Beatson / Gartnavel

Glasgow Royal Infirmary

Victoria Infirmary

Southern General Hospital

Stobhill Hospital

Hairmyres Hospital

Western Infirmary

Inverclyde Royal Hospital

 

Please note this list is not exhaustive. If you're not sure or would like to book your journey, please get in touch.

For more than 30 years, we've provided care and support for cancer patients and their families

Let us deal with the driving

Whether you're from Skelmorlie, Kilwinning, Beith or anywhere in between, we offer a door-to-door  transport service.

 

If you live on Arran, Bute or Cumbrae you will be picked up and returned to the ferry terminal.

 

Everyone in our catchment area who requires to visit a hospital or clinic for cancer treatment or consultation can call on our assistance for getting there and back in the comfort of a private car.

 

No need for you to worry about the route, where to park, or any other issues.

Car Interior

Taking care of transport

Our drivers are mature, caring people and have met and overcome most of the difficulties that arise. We aim to offer you a hassle-free journey. You will be picked up and returned to your own door. We cover all hospitals and clinics in Central Scotland.

 

Usually you will be the only passenger in the car, so there will be room for a friend or relative to escort you if you wish (although we do ask that you check this with us when you book).

 

Occasionally another person from your area (with an appointment time close to yours) will travel with you. Most people find this a bonus, as it helps to share your experiences with them, and long-lasting friendships have been known to form in this way.

 

We are able to offer our services free to all because our staff are unpaid volunteers and our funds are provided by the community of North Ayrshire through our charity shops, donations and other fundraising activities.
