Inpatient cancer services 

Situated in comfortable surroundings, the inpatient services specialise in surgical (particularly breast cancer and maxilio-facial cancer) and medical oncology, diagnostic and interventional radiology. There are 13 single rooms, 2 of which are isolation rooms. These are used to treat patients undergoing Stem Cell transplantation following high dose chemotherapy.

 

Their cancer nurses are all qualified within the specialty of cancer nursing giving them the necessary skills to ensure your safety which is paramount and that your stay is made as comfortable as possible.
