Acute Oncology
About Us

​The team's focus is to deliver a patient centred service with the following aims:

• delivery of safe, timely and effective care for cancer patients during an acute illness

• avoiding or minimising inpatient stay

• reducing time from referral to further management for new cancers

• achieving cost reductions by minimising the impact of unplanned care

• service development facilitating admission avoidance

Any acute oncology patients, requiring urgent outpatient review, are allocated to the most appropriate oncology clinics via a fast track system.

New Cancer Unknown Primary (CUP) referrals are allocated to the next available oncology clinic.
