Our patients experience a range of treatments in a supportive
and comfortable setting. This includes o chemotherapy, immunotherapy and blood product
support in one of our eight dedicated chemotherapy pods each of which has its
own accompanying triage assessment area/mini gym. Each pod has an entertainment
centre and offers patients privacy if desired.
We also have excellent inpatient facilities for those
requiring more inpatient care with six comfortable inpatient bedrooms, all of
which are en-suite.
The Highbury Centre beds are also available to patients on
an emergency basis, if, for example, a patient is acutely unwell after
treatment or is experiencing any oncological emergency. Patients having
undergone chemotherapy, for example, are more susceptible to infection because
of their lowered immunity.
One of our chemotherapy nurses and consultants are on call
at all times 24-hour a day, so patients can contact us at any time if they’re concerned.
We can perform a triage assessment with them over the phone to ascertain
whether they need to come in for admission or further tests or investigation.
