The BMI Ross Hall Hospital Cancer Care Centre offers fast access to treatment and all patients are treated by experienced Consultant Oncologists and our multi-disciplinary support team, who reassure patients every step of the way during what can be a very challenging time.
Chemotherapy at the BMI Ross Hall Cancer Care Centre
The BMI Ross Hall Cancer Care Centre provides a fully nurse-lead service for all patients from initial diagnosis including a 24 hour on-call programme for any patient to speak with a member of the senior nursing team between courses of treatment should they feel ill or in the need of any additional advice or support.
Our day chemotherapy unit provides Systematic Anti-Cancer Treatment (SACT) and supporting medications and is fully accredited with the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark (MQEM) which aims to set the highest possible standards for cancer care environments.
The BMI Ross Hall Cancer Care Centre has 11 private single en-suite rooms and prior to each pulse of treatment, patients undergo a full clinical assessment including their performance status, a review of any observations and treatment toxicity, providing them with a completely individual and personal care programme, tailored to their exact needs.
Every patient has 24 hour support from highly experienced oncology staff and are assessed and triaged in accordance with UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) triage system.
The BMI Ross Hall Cancer Care Centre also offers fast access to the support required to provide an effective chemotherapy service. This includes onsite diagnostic equipment (x-ray, MRI, CT) and blood test facilities and a fully stocked Pharmacy giving access to the latest drugs.
Whilst patients undergo each pulse of treatment, they have the additional benefit of an on-site complimentary therapist who can provide massage and other treatments to enhance the patient’s comfort whilst completing their treatment.
Here’s just a sample of what some of our patients have said either during or on completion of their treatment:
"I can honestly say that my doctor and all of her team make me feel exceptionally welcome and genuinely look after me and my wellbeing. It is a pleasure to come here not a chore. I highly recommend it to all my family and friends."
"I have been very well looked after since the second I had an appointment. Amazing care in high dependency, ward and oncology nurses were always on the other end of a phone whenever I needed them. Could not praise my care highly enough."
"Big thanks to all staff for their consideration and attention during my visits. Professional throughout, they offered encouragement and advice in equal measure and helped me through a difficult and traumatic time."
