transport2treatment

transport2treatment (t2t) is a no-cost service for patients who otherwise could not get to cancer treatment.

t2t offers a safe and supportive environment for patients. Interaction with other people while travelling to and from treatment can provide reassurance and camaraderie – and an opportunity to share experiences and provide support. This service is made possible by our dedicated and caring volunteer drivers who undertake appropriate training.

The service is funded by Cancer Council Tasmania through public donations and events. Cancer Council Tasmania does not receive government funding to run this service

“The friendship that developed among the patients was very worthwhile and supportive.”

“An excellent service – I really don’t know what we would have done without it. Everyone was helpful and very caring.”

Cancer Council Tasmania works closely with the treatment centres to ensure that patient appointment times are scheduled to minimise waiting times before and after treatment. Bookings are essential as places are limited.

Cancer Council Tasmania recommends patients contact staff at their local treatment centre to make a transport2treatment referral. Advanced notice of treatment dates and times will help to secure your booking.
