Bob McBratney, from North Yorkshire, has been receiving treatment for mesothelioma with Sciensus since September 2020. He received immunotherapy for three months before switching onto chemotherapy and is full of praise for the nurses that administer his treatment.

Bob currently has chemotherapy every three weeks and says that having his treatment at home “certainly makes life a lot easier”.

“Having treatment at home is ideal,” he says. “It’s been great during lockdown. Because I’ve been shielding,
I haven’t really wanted to go anywhere. So, it
really has worked very well.”

Flexible, communicative care

He adds: “Communication is really good. The Sciensus team are very good at keeping me informed on what’s happening and when, and they’ve been flexible with me, so that my nurse visits are scheduled for a convenient time.

“The nurses do a great job. All of them that I’ve met have been very personable, and easy to get on with.

“I receive a text with a two-hour window when the nurse is coming, and I also get a follow-up call to confirm. It’s never been outside of that window.”

At Sciensus, we make sure having complex cancer treatment at home is a real choice for thousands of patients every month. So, you can have your treatment and then get on with your life.
