Shuttle Services

What shuttle services are offered?

Patients who are on daily radiation treatment programmes and who have both transport and financial constraints are supported through a transport solution. The need for this service is assessed during the initial consultation process.

 

Our shuttle service initiative is offered in line with our mission to provide a compassionate and supportive treatment environment that upholds the dignity of our patients and that is supportive of their needs, from both physical and psychosocial viewpoints. We understand that the treatment process can be stressful, and it is our aim to minimise this stress wherever possible.

 

How does it work?

We offer transport from your house to the centre and return on a daily basis while on treatment. The times for collection and return are determined by the demand for this service and location. It may mean that you have to spend some time in the centre waiting for other patients to complete their treatment.

 

DMO has centres in the following locations, most of which are serviced by our shuttle transportation:

 

  • Ahmed Kathrada Private Hospital, Johannesburg
  • Sandton Oncology, Sandton
  • West Rand Oncology Centre, Roodepoort
  • Muelmed Radiation Oncology, Pretoria
  • Groenkloof Radiation Oncology, Pretoria

 

*Shuttle services are currently not available at the Pretoria units.
