About the acute oncology service

Our acute oncology service covers the following patient groups:

  • Patients in whom a first diagnosis of cancer is made in the emergency setting.
  • Patients with known cancer who present as an emergency with acute complications of non-surgical treatment – including Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT) or radiotherapy.
  • Patients with known cancer who are acutely ill because of the disease itself.

We provide a 24/7 telephone contact advice line for advice to patients, carers and professionals.
