Your Appointment Card with details about what will happen next

Cancer Support

Opening Times: Monday to Friday 9:00 – 17:00.
Telephone: Please speak to a member of staff in the hospital, who will be able to provide our contact details.

The cancer services team is made up from a number of different people including doctors, nurses, administrative and clerical staff. We have a shared aim to ensure that patients are investigated and if necessary treated for cancer in the most appropriate way. We aim to make sure that services are patient focussed and that we meet national standards and treat people within national targets set by the NHS.

If you have a cancer diagnosis, Cancer Care Navigators can offer support to you and your family and signpost you to local support services.

Patients and staff on our Rejuvenate programme 

How can I get a referral?

Normally your GP will refer you to our services via a two week wait (urgent) pathway. 

Your health is our number one priority. You will need to be available for diagnostic tests and appointments in the the next two weeks and to be available at short notice. We would ask that you attend and do not cancel appointments.

Nine out of 10 people referred in this way are not diagnosed with cancer.

Please see left for a copy of the card you will receive.

 

Where is the department located?

We have teams across the hospital and some link into teams at other hospitals. So if you have a query about the care you are receiving from your doctor at the hospital, they should give you our contact details.
