Geraldine is a seasoned traveller but this Summer's experience left her so fed up with her treatment as a disabled passenger she wants things to change & others to speak up. Hear her story, and why her MP is picking up her case 👇📻✈️👩‍🦼 @BBCWiltshire bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0cs4f…

So sad to hear about the death of @olivianj from #secondarybreast cancer. First diagnosed in 1992 she lived nearly a third of her life with cancer. Her Foundation raised millions of pounds for cancer research. Cancer patients live with the fear the disease can return at any time.

From tomorrow, all patients needing urgent or emergency care should enter the hospital through the UTC, excluding those arriving by ambulance. If you need to attend ED outside of UTC opening hours, please enter the hospital building via the west entrance and follow the signage.

Today we marked the official opening of our new Urgent Treatment Centre, before it sees the first patient through the doors next week. The ribbon-cutting ceremony marked one of the biggest milestones for the Trust in recent years. Thank you to everyone who joined us today.

This has been a long time coming, and I know from the experience of friends it will make a massive difference to patients - a new bit at @GWH_NHS run by @OUHospitals means radiotherapy for adults will be offered locally, no longer needing the exhausting regular travel to Oxford.
A new £20 million Radiotherapy Centre in at the @GWH_NHS in Swindon will be officially opened today. It's not open to patients just yet, but it means they will no longer have to travel to Oxford for treatment. Listen here: 👇bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0cg6x…

This is brilliant news for cancer patients in Swindon and Wiltshire. They will no longer have to travel miles out of county everyday for radiotherapy. @YBCN_UK @abcdiagnosis @Liz_ORiordan @bccww #cancer #radiotherapy #swindon
It's finally here! This new radiotherapy centre in Swindon is a game changer. Adult cancer patients will finally be able to get radiotherapy on site at Swindon's GWH Hear from the people who made it happen 🥰 👇 bbc.in/3naouHK @benpratershow @GWH_NHS @BF_NHS
