Medical Oncology

Medical Oncology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that deals with the diagnosis and management of cancer, in close collaboration with surgical and radiation oncologists, palliative care, genetics and haematology.

Patients who are being investigated or have been diagnosed with cancer should have holistic management of their disease, with all treatment options considered in the context of patient comorbidities, patient wishes and clearly defined treatment aims. Communication with patients and their families, as well as their health professionals, especially their GP, is essential. Where appropriate, patients are discussed anonymously at multidisciplinary clinics to ensure access to best practice, including clinical trials.

Cancer patients need to be seen in a timely manner and will always be accommodated in a short timeframe, according to need.
