Chemotherapy Village – levels C and C1
If you are receiving chemotherapy in the Cancer Centre, you will be directed to the Chemotherapy Village.
A receptionist will greet you when you arrive. They will ask you to take a seat and your nurse will meet you in the waiting area when it is time for your appointment.
As well as providing chemotherapy treatment, the Chemotherapy Village is where you will go for your pre-chemotherapy consultation, appointments to review your treatment, or extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) for dermatology patients.
If you are experiencing side effects of your treatment or problems relating to the cancer itself, please contact acute oncology. This service is available on 020 7188 3754 anytime. Between 8pm-8am (Monday to Friday) and at weekends, calls will be directed to the on-call doctor.
Acute oncology is in the Chemotherapy Village. This is where unwell patients will be assessed and treated before being sent home or admitted into hospital.
If you have been asked to attend acute oncology, there is no need to check-in beforehand at the Welcome Village – just go straight to the Chemotherapy Village.
If you have a question about your treatment you can talk to your key worker, a clinical nurse specialist, by calling 020 7188 9333 between 8.30am-6.30pm.
