Kent's new mobile chemotherapy unit is treating its first patients. It means cancer patients can be treated close to home, avoiding long journeys to hospital.
The £260,00 bus was donated to the East Kent Hospitals Trust by the charity Hope for Tomorrow. The unit is named 'Caron' after TV presenter Gloria Hunniford's daughter, who died of breast cancer in 2004. She spoke to Meridian about the benefits.
