Mobile cancer advice service for Thorne and Moorends

DONCASTER’S cancer information team will be going mobile in a mini van to reach out to people in Thorne and Moorends next month.

The team, from Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH), is taking to the streets to talk to people about signs and symptoms of cancer.

They will also be offering support for those who have experienced cancer themselves or with friends and family.

Advice about healthy lifestyles and how to make positive choices will also be available when the mobile service rolls into Thorne and Moorends on Tuesday, October 11.

The team will use a mini-van borrowed from another RDaSH service, the St John’s Hospice and Information Centre.

Roger Williams, cancer information and support worker, encouraged people to stop for a chat.

He added: “We’re committed to trying new approaches to reach people with advice and information and this time we’re going to be getting out and about to see people on the streets.”
