Travel2Care is a limited transportation assistance fund which has been made available by the National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) to patients travelling to the eight designated cancer care centres or approved satellite centre and is administered by the Irish Cancer Society.
Please note that we cannot provide financial assistance towards retrospective appointments.
There are two types of application forms for Travel2Care:
Travel2Care Form A is for investigations and assessments. You can get Travel2Care Form A by:
Once completed, post your application to Travel2Care, Irish Cancer Society, 43-45 Northumberland Rd, Dublin 4.
Travel2Care Form B is for ongoing travel (chemotherapy and radiotherapy only) and is available only from a healthcare professional such as a medical social worker or your cancer nurse. A healthcare professional is not obliged to make an application and must be satisfied that there is a genuine financial need. Please speak to a medical social worker, cancer nurse or other healthcare professional regards assistance for travel for chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
