Multidisciplinary meetings are held to discuss and monitor patient progress to ensure that they receive the most appropriate care.
Outpatient clinics are held in Sunderland Royal Hospital Chester Wing outpatients, with a qualified nurse who is part of the Chemotherapy and Haematology Day Unit team, supporting these clinics.
We also have an oncology and haematology day unit at South Tyneside District Hospital. This is a nurse led service which delivers treatments and interventions to patients with a cancer diagnosis and disorders of the blood (haematology).
The service includes a range of chemotherapy treatments as well as other supportive therapies e.g. blood tests, blood transfusion, pre-treatment assessment, infusions to help with bone pain.
