If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

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.
