Hi I have a very rare leukaemia and visit Guys hospital in London travelling from Liverpool. I’ve always travelled by train and paid the fare but the cost has gone up a lot so wandered if anyone knew if it is possible to claim this back from someone? Thanks in advance
A great question to raise as I am sure there are probably other people in a similar situation to you.
We have some information for grants on our Money and Work page: Money&Work, please do have a look.
I do know that Leukaemia Care has a grant for Cost of Living, (this used to be a Travel Fund grant) that can be used to claim back travel costs. Here is the link: [LCfund/CoL] to apply (Cost of Living Fund - Leukaemia Care)
You could also try asking your CNS if the Hospital has a claims form for your travel expenses.
I hope you manage to get some help with these additional costs.
Best wishes, Heidi.
Hi @Leggit a really good question that could also help others
@Heidi_BloodCancerUK has given you a great response.
I have just looked this information up and I know nothing about it but I will copy you this link from The Macmillan cancer website Macmillan financial grants | Macmillan Cancer Support
Please do let us know how you get on and look after yourself
