Transport to Treatment
Cancer Council NT
The Cancer Council NT Transport to Treatment program began in 2018 with sponsorship from Darwin International Airport and the Dry July foundation.
The program provides transport for cancer patients from home to the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre, Royal Darwin and Palmerston hospitals, and medical specialist appointments.
The program runs Monday to Friday and is fully staffed by volunteer drivers. In 2019 the program completed over 35,000 km’s of transport for cancer patients across Darwin and the rural area.
The Transport to Treatment program is totally financed through fundraising – with the staff members salary and vehicle running costs provided through fundraising events and corporate sponsors.
Clients must have a referral from a member of their treatment team. This referral is to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
