Our services

Chemotherapy services

Chemotherapy services are provided by this Trust at York and Scarborough hospitals and at our mobile chemotherapy unit, funded by York Against Cancer.

Many patients are able to attend as a day patient at either of our units or, if suitable to your circumstances, at our mobile chemotherapy unit where patients can receive certain chemotherapy regimes in Scarborough, Bridlington, Malton and Selby. 

Our departments in both York and Scarborough hospitals offer:

  • Pre-assessments appointments with a chemotherapy nurse
  • Deliver chemotherapy for outpatients
  • Specialist oncology and haematology nurses
  • 8:30am-5:00pm telephone triage service (out of hours is Ward 31)

Contact Number - 01904 726516

Our out of hours patient helpline has recently changed

This change affects oncology patients receiving chemotherapy at Scarborough Hospital only.
If you are unwell out of hours (5 pm - 8 am, weekends and bank holidays), you will now need to contact Ward 31 on 01904 726031.
Please replace your alert card with these new details. Your nurse will be able to provide you with a card.

Introduction to chemotherapy

At your pre-assessment our chemotherapy nurses help you prepare for your treatment.

They have produced a step by step guide to what to expect and how you and your family will be supported throughout your treatment.
