Bath Cancer Unit Support Group is a small local charity formed in 1985 that supports the work of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Unit at the Royal United Hospital Bath. BCUSG is run entirely by volunteers and has minimal overheads resulting in around 90%/95% of money raised going straight into transforming cancer care at the RUH.
Over £4.9 million has been raised to-date, current major fundraising project;
- £240,000 to purchase an upgraded Solid-State Gamma Camera. The NHS have agreed to fund a standard model but by BCUSG adding an additional £240,000 a more advanced model can be purchased. The benefits of a more advanced solid-state gamma camera include better energy resolution resulting in improved contrast (better images for diagnosis) and significantly improved sensitivity which will allow increased patient throughput permitting more timely scans and reduced patient delays.
On an ongoing basis BCUSG provides financial support towards: specialist staff education and training, flowers, newspapers and refreshments in the oncology reception and waiting areas and headscarves for patients who have experienced hair loss.
As an official race charity secured places are available for the Bath Half 2020 in support of this charity’s work.
BCUSG runners will be provided with a personalised running “T” shirt and we will be there on race day to support you.
