The Bandon Hyperbaric Oxygen Centre (BHOC) is a self-funding and independent, registered charity. Registered Charity No 12765.
We administer Oxygen Treatment to people living with neurological and other short & long-term health conditions. We are the only charity orientated Oxygen Centre in Ireland and we are affiliated to UK MS National Therapy Centres Ltd, a UK-wide network of 65 centres that deliver oxygen treatment in a similar manner.
Oxygen Treatment is a very powerful way of oxygenating the body to assist healing. Clients who have benefited include those with MS, Fibromyalgia, ME, Autism, Brain Injury, Parkinson’s, (Sports) Injuries, some cancers, and HBOT is now a newly advised treatment for Long Covid.
Our Oxygen Treatment is administered by a group of local volunteers who are competent and trained operators. We are fully dependent and enormously grateful to these fine altruistic people who give up their time and expertise for the good of people less fortunate than themselves. Consequently, due to comparatively low overheads, we can offer treatment at a very reduced rate to our clients. Clients from all over Ireland and beyond, are treated in our Centre with people often travelling from abroad to avail of our professional and inexpensive service.
The Centre was established in 1997 out of concern for a local man, Mr. Liam Deasy, who suffered from MS. Mr. Deasy and his friends formed a fundraising committee and set up the BHOC in Bandon town. It was a most innovative and remarkable achievement and their legacy endures today as thousands of people continue to benefit from their foresight, financial bravery and generosity of spirit.
We, in the BHOC endeavour to honour and respect our founding members and our former volunteer colleagues, by maintaining the highest standards of oxygen treatment, in the best traditions of the Bandon Hyperbaric Oxygen Centre. Cuimhnímis
