Help with transport

Don’t let travel concerns prevent you from accessing the treatment you need. If you require transport between Chesterfield or Barnsley and Sheffield Hospitals for cancer treatment, we can help.

“I couldn’t fault it at all. The people running the service are fantastic – you could talk to them
like you would your family.”

Covid-19 security measures

Our drivers are fully trained, verified volunteers and are tested for Covid-19 twice weekly. Our vehicles undergo checks every day to ensure the health and safety of passengers at all times.

Covid-19 specific risk assessments have been conducted for the Transport Service with sanitising procedures put in place.
