Oncology

We provide comprehensive medical and nursing care to patients with a diagnosis of cancer.

Oncology services at Grimsby hospital are based within the Amethyst Unit providing a dedicated inpatient, day case and outpatient clinic facility. The unit offers a seamless and personalised service to patients utilising multi-disciplinary expertise, which includes provision of an acute oncology service.

Consultant medical care for cancer patients is provided by five visiting consultant oncologists from Queen’s Cancer Centre, Castle Hill Hospital, Hull, in close collaboration with clinical nurse specialists, chemotherapy nurses and a Macmillan Advanced Nurse practitioner team. The oncology department is part of the North East Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Alliance, and works in close collaboration with the cancer centre based at Queens Cancer Centre Hull.

At Scunthorpe patients are cared for on Ward 18.
