Cancer Services Cancer Services

Corporate Cancer Services works very closely with service users, commissioning bodies, and clinical and managerial colleagues across all specialties within the Trust, to ensure that patients are at the centre of all we do and that services for cancer patients are integrated with the work of all directorates and departments.

We believe we can offer you the best and most convenient cancer care.  We are committed to ensuring the highest quality services are provided to cancer patients, using the latest technology and treatment.

Our Multi Disciplinary Teams (MDTs) will be with you from the start, supporting you with specialist skills through every part of your journey.

Our MDT teams provide the care you need as close to your home as possible.  So as well as delivering services at our main hospital sites in Worcester, Kidderminster and Redditch, we are actively exploring how to provide more services even more locally, (for example, in community hospitals).  Some treatment can be given in the patients' own homes.

The Worcestershire Oncology Centre opened in January 2015 to enable our patients to receive the latest radiotherapy treatment locally.  This has prevented patients having to travel long distances to receive their radiotherapy treatment.

Corporate Cancer Services works closely with Macmillan Cancer Support to provide our patients and their families with information about a wide range of cancer-related issues.

Our Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service is available to anyone (the general public, patients, relatives, friends, employers and health and social care professionals):

  • searching for information about cancer awareness
  • checking for signs of cancer and cancer screening
  • wishing to reduce their risk, or
  • living with and beyond cancer

Our staff and trained volunteers offer support, both emotional and practical, as well as information to anyone affected by cancer.

Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centres are located on the Ground Floor on each of our three hospital sites as well as within The Worcestershire Oncology Centre which offer:

  • Access to information, practical advice and emotional support, all within a safe and relaxed environment
  • A listening ear
  • Guidance about benefits and financial support
  • Advice on work-related issues
  • Referrals to other services
  • Signposting to other healthcare professionals and supporting organisations
