Dr George Edelstyn, an oncologist at Belvoir Park Hospital founded Action Cancer with the aim to fund pioneering research into chemotherapy and to support patients and their families during treatment.
Due to an increase in demand for our services, we moved to 20 Windsor Avenue. We built a new breast screening suite using state of the art 3D imaging and a therapeutic centre of excellence, which is used by thousands of local people every year.
We introduced our new Big Bus – a bespoke, unique vehicle which brings our screening and health check services to the hearts of the communities we exist to serve.
We provide breast screening to around 8,000 women every year in Action Cancer House and onboard the Big Bus. Supported by SuperValu and Centra, the Big Bus delivers early detection and health promotion services to 200 locations across Northern Ireland every year.
