The Service

The department specialises in treating Cancer and Haematology disorders. Oncology doctors treat solid cancers and the haematology team treat blood cancers and also other haematological conditions that are not cancer.

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.

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.

Drinks and biscuits are served by volunteers and provided by the Bath Cancer Unit Support Group during the morning clinics.

There are seven clinic rooms, a phlebotomy room and a pharmacy service all located in the outpatients unit.
