Patient stories on transport and accommodation challenges

Posted by Cairin: July 2013

Have you or a loved one travelled long distances or been forced to stay overnight in Melbourne to receive vital cancer treatment?

We are gathering patient stories to advocate for improved transport and accommodation support for Victorian cancer patients but we need your help.

Cancer Council Victoria is gathering case studies and stories about transport and accommodation challenges patients face when undergoing treatment, with a particular focus on the Victorian Patient Transport Assistance Scheme (VPTAS). 

Cancer Council Victoria will use these stories to advocate for improved transport and accommodation support for Victorians in the lead up to the next election.

If you would like to share your experiences, either anonymously or not, please contact us by email at csg@cancervic.org.au or telephone Deborah Lawson on (03) 9635 5245.
