The service

The department specialises in treating Cancer and Haematology disorders.

Doctors, specialist nurses, pharmacists and radiographers see patients in the department.

The waiting room is used for patients attending clinics, waiting for radiotherapy treatment and chemotherapy treatment.

The clinics are arranged to see new patients and patients on treatment and follow up.

We are situated in the RUH North, Department A12.

The Radiotherapy treatment area and the Chemotherapy suite are located in the department. William Budd day care facility is next door to the department.

There is a reception area staffed Monday to Friday, and waiting room with a trolley bay facility for people to lie down if required. There is access to a patio and garden area.
