The new Macmillan Woodlands Centre opened in August 2016.
Working in partnership with Macmillan, Hinchingbrooke NHS Trust and local fundraisers to raise money to build a state-of-the-art cancer centre.
The Woodlands Centre has:
Patients can access daily chemotherapy and other supportive treatments: Monday to Friday, 8am-6pm.
Acute Oncology Service
A clinical trials team works closely with the Oncology and Haematology doctors and patients will have access to any relevant trials available to them.
We are developing early discharge, via a risk stratification programme:
Patients with low risk cancers do not need to be followed up at the Woodlands centre
A team of highly skilled cancer community nurses (HCCN) offer supportive follow up and health and wellbeing classes to help support patients
Hunts Community Nurses
Work closely with the Woodlands Centre and the GPs in caring for people being diagnosed with cancer and going through their cancer journey.
The National Cancer Survivorship Initiative (NCSI) aim is to ensure that those living with and beyond cancer get the care and support they need to lead as healthy and active a life as possible, for as long as possible.
The National Cancer Survivorship initiative vision document, published in January 2010 identified 5 key shifts necessary to transform cancer care:
Information and support from point of diagnosis
Managing consequences of treatment
Supporting people with active and advanced disease
