This programme is now available to view on egovtv.tv, the online television channel for public service modernisation. It describes a pioneering mobile chemotherapy service from cancer charity Tenovus.

The charity uses a hi-tech mobile clinic from specialist supplier EMS to deliver treatment in the heart of local communities. The mobile unit, which houses comprehensive facilities, opens up to over 50m2. Several patients can be treated at the same time.

The service is popular with patients because it is more convenient and it also reduces pressure on hospitals.

GovTV is a dedicated web-cast television channel for governors of public bodies, council members and senior executives across all public sector organisations and is available free to an unlimited audience at anytime, at any location via the internet.
