ABOUT FORTUNESWELL CANCER TRUST

The Fortuneswell Cancer Trust is a registered charity that works to improve the services to patients and staff of the Cancer Unit at Dorset County Hospital and elsewhere.

Some of the ways in which the Trust contributes to the care and welfare of cancer patients include:

Improvements to the facilities of the Fortuneswell Cancer Ward and Outpatients Chemotherapy Unit at Dorset County Hospital.

Supporting the opportunities for providing treatment, when appropriate, in locations nearer to patients’ homes.

Funding projects which help cancer patients in the locality.

Providing financial assistance to nurses and medical staff to help them engage in research, study and education to provide better management of patients with cancer.

The long-term aim is to further develop the dedicated Cancer Centre in the Dorset County Hospital.
