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.
