Acute oncology service

The acute oncology service is a service for our patients who require urgent advice or admission as a result of their cancer, suspected cancer or treatment.

We have two 24/7 dedicated emergency telephone numbers, one for haematology patients and the other for oncology patients.  Both these phones are staffed by a team of skilled nursing practitioners specialising in haematology and oncology.

The acute oncology team works closely with all departments to ensure anyone who has a cancer diagnosis or suspected of having a cancer but is admitted for another reason is seen by a specialist within 24 hours.
