Free, Exclusive, Cancer Care Transport

The Berwick & District Cancer Support Group was founded in 1992 and our main service is to provide free transport to any cancer sufferer to all major hospitals in our area e.g. Wansbeck, Newcastle, Borders General and Edinburgh for cancer related appointments. The group is entirely made up of volunteers and we rely on the help and support of everyone in the community. Get in touch with us to find out more and help us by supporting the many events and activities that the community hold in aid of our charity.

Our drivers try to ensure a comfortable journey and should you need any further assistance please don’t hesitate to ask, as other practical help can be arranged if needed.

Adhering to the current COVID-19 restrictions, a number of measures are still in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of drivers and clients.

Coronavirus - COVID-19

Most Recent Update : 10 October 2021

The Berwick & District Cancer Support Group remains absolutely committed to the well-being and protection of our vulnerable clients and our volunteers.

Masks need to be worn at all times to protect our clients and our drivers.

Hand sanitiser will continue to be available in all our cars and our drivers will ensure surfaces are wiped clean before and after each journey.

Due to the increasingly high volume of requests for our cancer transportation service we ask that contact be made with our co-ordinators as soon as possible with the details of cancer related appointments, we will continue to do everything we possibly can to assist all our clients : 07780 795244

A statement from our Chair :

"The nature of our service and the fact we are dealing with clinically extremely vulnerable clients I feel it would be in all our interests to leave our 'Covid Safe' platform and procedures in place for the time being : Our drivers and clients will continue to wear masks and our cars will be sanitised at every opportunity."

OK, YOU HAVE CANCER!

We would love to take this horrible disease away from you but unfortunately we can't.  What we can do though is make sure you don't have to worry about travelling the 120 miles for your appointments each time.

We are a lovely bunch of people who all live in Berwick (you may even know some of us), we have 6 top of the range, comfortable cars, a smiling, happy driver who will come and collect you, show you where you need to go, wait for you and bring you home safely again.  All for FREE!

Let us help.......
