Cancer Care in York Trust
The York Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Cancer service sits within the Hull Coast & Vale Strategic Clinical Network. More than 4,000 new cancers are diagnosed each year across the Trusts various hospital sites.
We provide the majority of diagnostic and supportive care along with most treatments (e.g. surgery and Chemotherapy) for common cancers locally across the various Trust hospital sites. The Trust works closely with the Leeds Cancer Centre and Queens Cancer Centre in Hull to provide treatments for patients with less common cancers and radiotherapy.
Our experienced and skilled professionals specialise in many disciplines, and come together to work as multi-disciplinary teams (MDT). This ensures that our patients receive the best possible care. All teams include clinical nurse specialist to support patients through all stages of their diagnosis and treatment. Each MDT usually meets weekly to make recommendations for individualised care for each patient.
Every MDT has a range of specialists who attend each meeting and can include:
- Clinical Nurse Specialist
- Speech & Language Therapists
- MDT administration
Once a case has been discussed at the MDT meeting the patient may be seen in clinic or rung by one of the team to discuss the outcome from the meeting. This might include being told another test is needed or to discuss the treatment options. The Trust has numerous Cancer Services and further information can be found via the below links.
