Cancer unit in borough

Action Cancer is bringing its mobile unit, the Big Bus, to Carnmoney in April, as part of its ongoing tour of the region.

The unit will be located at Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, 258 Carnmoney Road, on April 1.

The 18 metre-long articulated vehicle with expanding side pods, houses cancer prevention and early detection services and staff on the unit also provide information about support services.

The mobile clinic, whose main sponsor is retail group SuperValu and its independent retailers, was launched in 2006 to help Action Cancer save lives and support people.

Services provided on the Big Bus, which is fully accessible for people with disabilities by means of a wheelchair lift, include digital breast screening for women aged between 40 and 49 and over 70, and health promotion and MOT health checks for men and women.

Anyone interested should contact 9080 3344.
