Chemotherapy Unit

Chemotherapy administration involves the treatment of tumours or diseases of the blood using drugs. These drugs may be given intravenously, into the muscle or under the skin via an injection or orally via a tablet or capsule and is given by a nurse competent in the delivery of cytotoxic drugs. Before treatment begins you will have an appointment with a doctor who prescribes the chemotherapy; usually a medical oncologist or haematologist (blood disorder specialist). Your doctor will then discuss with you the treatment options available, based on the type of tumour and its location in the body. You and your doctor will then decide on the best treatment plan for you. Once the treatment is decided, an appointment for the first treatment will be made which may include an education session to discuss side effects that may occur. The nursing staff in the unit will be available to answer questions you may have on the day.
