Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins has hailed a bus service which helps cancer patients get to hospital for treatment.

Nenna Kind Cancer Support Drop-in Centre in Chesterfield runs a dedicated bus service direct to Sheffield’s Weston Park Hospital.

Mr Perkins, who met staff on Friday, said: “Cancer treatment can be gruelling enough and the last thing people need is the worry and cost of travelling to Sheffield and back.

“I would urge anyone in this position to contact Nenna Kind to see if the service could help them.

“This service can reduce the cost and stress of travel and leave patients free to concentrate on their treatments and recovery.”

Tickets are £5 return. For more information about the service call 01246 555514.
