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.
What services are provided?
We provide treatment for the following body sites :
- Head and Neck
- Skin (Dermatology)
- Upper digestive system
- And for Children, Teenagers and Young People
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.
