Petition started to get satellite radiotherapy centre at Stevenage’s Lister Hospital

A campaign has been started to try and bring a satellite radiotherapy centre to Stevenage’s Lister Hospital. At the moment the closest centre is 30 miles away in Middlesex at the Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood, which means long round trips for patients from North Herts who need treatment. But North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald is trying to change that.

    Millions have been spent upgrading Lister hospital but the staff have not been funded to man the cancer unit. People are still having to travel to Harefield, My friend HAD TO BE AT HAREFIELD FOR HER RADIOTHERAPY REALLY EARLY ON NEW YEARS DAY. ONLY ONE OF THE MANY DAYS SHE HAS HAD TO TRAVEL FOR BOTH CHEMO AND RADIOTHERAPY.It does not help knowing that Lister being four minutes drive away,is not available.

    Mount Vernon has been a nightmare to get to for Stevenage residents for cancer treatments, It is really upsetting to still have to travel there when the new cancer unit is four minutes drive away Even New Years Day my friend had to be there at 7.30am for her ongoing cancer treatment.
