The chemotherapy of cancer is complex and should be confined to specialists in oncology and haematology. However it is inevitable that patients actively undergoing chemotherapy will contact other doctors regarding their symptoms. Should you require any additional information regarding management please contact the numbers below.

Haematology and oncology patients should contact Turner ward in the first instance. Calls are then triaged appropriately.
Patients may receive continuous infusions of chemotherapy via a portable infusion device at home. Patients are instructed of the 'do's and don'ts' with these devices.
If a patient presents with a blocked line or leaking device, advice should be sought from the appropriate ward / outpatient department.
