A CANCER charity which has helped thousands of Barnsley patients received a visit from an MP last week.
Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis stopped off at Weston Park on Thursday to discuss a range of issues from the free transport service the charity offers to local residents in Barnsley, how the charity is tackling regional health disparities and investment in research and clinical trials.
“It was great to visit Weston Park, whose staff do incredible work supporting thousands of patients affected by cancer across our region,” Dan said.
“It was particularly interesting to hear about the free transport service the charity provides to patients undergoing cancer treatment at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.
“I know cancer treatment is gruelling and stressful, not least in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis.
“This free transportation to and from the hospital is a lifeline for many and just one of the ways the charity is easing the burden on patients at the toughest time of their lives.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
