A diagnosis of cancer can have an impact on many areas of your life, both during and after treatment. Getting the right support, information and practical advice at the right time can help patients and their families cope with the impact of living with and after cancer.
At the Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust we have the facilities to diagnose and treat many types of cancer.
Our wide range of services for both adults and young people includes:
Chemotherapy (drug therapy)
Haemato-oncology (cancer of the blood)
Supportive care services
We provide inpatient, day-case and outpatient services for cancer treatments.
Where highly specialised treatments are required, patients are referred to the appropriate specialist centre, which is usually a recognised centre of excellence for that particular type of cancer and its treatment.
