Chemotherapy Service

Chemotherapy is a type of cancer treatment where medicine is used to kill the cancer cells. It does this by damaging them so they cannot reproduce and spread.

We offer a cutting-edge chemotherapy service at City Hospital and at King’s Mill Hospital. Our multi-disciplinary team of oncologists (doctors who specialise in treating cancer), pharmacists and chemotherapy nurses is trained to the highest level and aims to provide a chemotherapy treatment service that equals the best national and international standards.

The oncology satellite unit at King’s Mill Hospital offers day case chemotherapy, where patients do not usually have to stay in hospital overnight.
