what to expect


treatment - chemotherapy

Chemotherapy involves being given anti-cancer drugs through a drip. Many of our patients will need chemotherapy as part of their treatment. Chemotherapy is given at University College Hospital. You will be treated either as an out-patient in Day Care in the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre , or as an inpatient on the oncology wards on T11 (children), T12 (teenagers), T14 and T16 (adults). If you are having in-patient chemotherapy, your treatment will be arranged by a team of chemotherapy nurses who will contact you before your first hospital admission, and who will coordinate your care all through treatment.
