Tenovus mobile unit

What is the mobile unit/bus?

It is a fully equipped mobile treatment area. It is based in Cwmbran, Newport on Thursdays and Nantgarw, Cardiff on Monday’s and Fridays. It is staffed with experienced trained nurses from Velindre Cancer Centre and Tenovus staff. 

What treatment can I have?

You can receive some treatments, herceptin and zometa. You can also come onto the unit for PICC dressing or pump disconnections.

Why should I come onto unit?

Your treatment can now be delivered in a more relaxed and personal setting. With limited treatment chairs we have fewer patients waiting so shorter waiting times. It is easily accessible and there is plenty of free parking. 

Whilst waiting, you can speak to the Tenovus team about any support or financial advice you need.

What if there is an emergency, how can I feel safe?

We have all the necessary equipment and all staff are fully trained to deal with emergencies.

What if I need to see a doctor?

You will still see your consultant as usual. If you feel unwell whilst on the unit we will assess your needs and arrange an appointment at Velindre for the same day if needed.

What facilities are on the unit? 

We will offer you tea and coffee when you arrive. We have a television and a toilet on the unit. We have a small waiting area so you can bring someone with you.
