Transport to treatment booking request
The Cancer Council NSW Transport to Treatment program complements existing Community Transport Services in your community by providing eligible patients with transport to treatment free of charge.
Trips are made by a dedicated team of trained volunteers, using Cancer Council NSW vehicles, to ensure your patients reach their treatment.
To ensure the viability and transparency of this service we encourage you to check that your patient qualifies:
- Patients must have or have had an active diagnosis of cancer
- Utilise the service to access chemotherapy and radiation therapy treatment
- Have an appointment directly related to their cancer
- Lives within the transport service catchment area
- Not have access to a vehicle or unable to drive at present
- Not have family or friends that can assist with transport; or
- Not being able to access other Community Transport services.
To be able to use this service your patient must:
- be able to walk unassisted for at least 20 metres
- be in complete control of their own bodily functions (i.e. be able to toilet themselves unassisted)
- be able to wear a seatbelt fitted correctly
- not have an oxygen tank they are required to use.
After submitting the form below, you’ll receive an email advising that we’ve received the request and we’ll start the process of contacting the patient or their nominated contact person to check availability, confirm and schedule their transport to treatment requirements.
Tip: Please be prepared with details about where the patient is being transported to and when their first appointment will be. Fields marked * are mandatory.
