The Oncology service at City Hospital Sunderland provides a number of clinics for new and review patients referred for non-surgical cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other newly established treatments.
Oncologists from the Northern Cancer Centre for Treatment (NCCT) undertake clinics in Sunderland and manage a range of treatments across tumour types, including urology, colorectal, breast, lung, upper gastrointestinal, head and neck and gynaecological cancers. Multidisciplinary meetings to discuss and monitor patient progress are also held on the City Hospitals Sunderland site.
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.
Services operate mainly from Sunderland Royal Hospital's Phoenix Unit, D Level.
