BESS Home and Community Care

St John of God Bunbury Hospital has joined with Bess home & community care Inc to set up a transport service between Busselton and Bunbury for patients attending cancer related appointments at the Bunbury South West Health Campus.

No medical support is provided on the bus so all patients must be self caring. Carers can attend appointments too if there is space.

There is a $10.00 fee per round trip to Bunbury. Download the patient consent form from the BESS website.
