Chemotherapy Services

East Kent’s chemotherapy units provide anti-cancer and supportive treatments in a comfortable out-patient setting.

At present, out-patient care is given at Cathedral Day Unit at K&C, the Celia Blakey Centre at WHH, and Viking Day Unit at QEQM.   We also have a mobile chemotherapy unit which travels to different sites in Kent, three days a week. This allows us to continue to treat as many patients as we can, closer to their own homes, reducing the need for stressful travel, and providing care in a comfortable and convenient, self-contained unit.

The Cancer Care Line

  Contact The Cancer Care Line:  01227 868666

 (Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am - 4pm)

This is a central helpline for all patients who have come into contact with a Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist or the Macmillan Acute Oncology Team. Not all people that are given this number have cancer, some maybe undergoing investigations to rule it out.

The people that answer your calls are not medically trained and in order for them to direct you to correct person/ team, they will ask for some clinical and personal information.

The Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialists run designated phone clinics, therefore if appropriate you will be booked onto the next available telephone clinic which may not be the same day.

If the Cancer Care Line Co-ordinator's triage indicates you require urgent clinical advice, you will be put through to the specialist nurse of the day.
