During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Cancer Services (Oncology and Haematology)

Last updated: 24 January 2022

B level

Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust (PHU) has a Haematology and Oncology service that treats patients referred to Queen Alexandra hospital with a potential cancer or a possible haematological disorder.

Haematology is the medical specialty involved in diagnosing and treating patients with blood disorders. These disorders can be either cancerous or non-cancerous.

Oncology is the medical specialty that treats those patients who have been diagnosed with cancer.

PHU has a designated cancer centre treating a wide range of cancers and haematology disorders for patients aged over 16 years who live in southern Hampshire and some parts of West Sussex. It has close links with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust and cancer services based in Chichester and the Isle of Wight. Adults diagnosed with very rare cancers and children diagnosed with cancer are normally referred to the specialist centres in Southampton and London for their treatment. New patients to the service will be referred via other specialities within PHU, from other NHS Trusts or your GP.

PHU also has a Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre which is available to all patients, family and anyone affected by cancer. The Centre is located on B Level, next to the Haematology and Oncology Outpatients waiting area, by lift area 2. The Centre is open Monday to Friday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, click here for more information.

The centre also has a wealth of information and advice for cancer patients and their families available to scan through QR codes in a Big Book of Help booklet.
