A bit about the iVAN: In July 2009 Merseyside and Cheshire Cancer Network launched the iVan service. The iVan Cancer Awareness, Information and Support Van is a 27 foot long bright yellow mobile service that tours Merseyside and Cheshire. It is a walk in, no appointment necessary information and support service with a small private consultation area and at the front of the vehicle is a comprehensive information library of leaflets around spotting the signs and symptoms of cancer. Visitors can either browse the leaflets or take any they feel they need, or speak to Debbie about specific symptoms. They can sit down and spend as long as they like with Debbie while Justine talks to other visitors about spotting the signs and symptoms, early detection and prevention.
