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.

You may hear or read some other terms such as Haematology and Oncology and these mean:

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 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.

All patients attending appointments at the Combined Haematology Oncology Centre must enter the hospital using the designated Haematology and Oncology entrance located on Pasteur Road, between the Main and North entrances.
