Our Services A - Z - Acute Oncology

About the service

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.
