WHAT WE AIM TO ACHIEVE a. To provide sensitive and practical support for patients and families as outlined in the guidelines for affiliated groups with the Cancer Council of Victoria
b. To provide a transport and support service to assist cancer patients living on the Mornington Peninsula to attend medical appointments and treatment at hospitals in Frankston, Moorabbin, Melbourne and locally.
c. Maintain and operate the service as a non profit organisation.
WHAT DO WE DO ?
The group has been functioning on the Southern Peninsula since 1987 and provides transport for cancer patients, often for long periods of time. This is one way to assist patients and their families who have difficulty arranging their own transport because of age, distance from relatives or friends or find public transport unreliable and/or time consuming. Our volunteer drivers take the stress out of daily travel.
The transport service has always relied on its 25+ volunteer drivers, using their own cars, with patients being taken to major hospitals in the city, Frankston and locally.
PHONE CONTACT If you wish to advise us of an appointment or treatment please call a driving coordinator on 0429 624 375 for all enquiries and bookings. Jenny, Mary, Jan and Mark are the coordinators. Don't wait until the last minute to make a booking as we do get very busy each week.
