What to expect when attending your appointment
Cancer services at the Trust provide diagnostic and supportive care, such as surgery and chemotherapy, for common cancers locally across the Trust hospital sites where more than 4,000 new cancers are diagnosed each year.
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) to ensure the best possible care for patients.
All teams include a clinical nurse specialist to support patients through all stages of their diagnosis and treatment. The teams meet regularly to make recommendations for individualised care which is discussed with each patient at a clinic appointment or over the phone.
The service sits within the Hull Coast & Vale Strategic Clinical Network which is committed to helping more people to survive cancer and to support people in the region to live well with and beyond cancer.
