Byron Central Chemo Unit “Really Lovely”
Bay local, Ann Kerrigan is one of the first patients to be treated in the Byron Central Hospital’s Chemotherapy unit.
Ann used to travel to the Tweed Hospital Oncology Ward every week for treatment, a 140 kilometre round trip, 50 minutes each way.
“The set up is really lovely, and being able to duck out to our new hospital is so much more convenient,” said Ann.
“It saves us so much time and petrol.”
Ann’s daughter Deb Challis also said the view out the window at the new hospital is much improved over the brick wall at Tweed.
“The view out the window is absolutely beautiful at BCH,” she said.
“And each patient has their own private cubicle for treatment.”
Ann still has six months of further treatment and we wish Ann all the very best for a speedy recovery.
