- urological cancers (including cancers of the bladder, kidney, prostate and testicles).
Our oncologists and consultants are supported by specialist oncology nurses. They have extensive experience in a wide range of malignancies, providing support for patients from diagnosis through to treatment and follow-up. Their knowledge and practice is kept up-to-date through regular clinical updates and competency assessments. Our cancer nurses are trained in all issues relating to cancer including chemotherapy, the management of side effects and in providing supportive care.
