Outpatient cancer services
The outpatients department at The Holly Private Hospital offers a very wide range of healthcare services from our private GP service to dermatology and counselling.
As a cancer patient at The Holly Private Hospital you may need to attend the Outpatients clinic to see your consultant oncologist or another member of the team. Sometimes you may need to see more than one healthcare professional during your visit to the hospital.
Other people who work in the outpatients department include:
- other consultant doctors (who work in a variety of specialities)
- phlebotomists (who take blood)
- health care assistants
When you visit the Outpatients clinic you may be asked to have an x-ray, scan or other test to give your consultant oncologist more information about your health. You will need to visit our Diagnostic and Imaging services to have these tests. The doctor or nurse may also take some of your blood or other samples for further testing.
Staff in our Pathology Department will carry out all tests and analysis of your blood and samples onsite at the hospital. This means that you don’t have to wait a long time for tests and can often get results the same day or within 24 hours.
