Find out more about cancer treatment at hospital’s oncology open day

Patients and the public can find out more about how cancer is treated at an open day later this month.

Posted on in Announcements

The oncology centre at Lincoln County Hospital is holding an open day for cancer patients and the public from 9.30am until 12.30pm on Saturday 30 March.

There will be displays and information to look at in the main waiting room and the chemotherapy suite will be open to look around. Staff will be on hand to answer questions about radiotherapy and chemotherapy and also enquiries regarding radiotherapy or nursing as a possible career choice.

The Hope for Tomorrow mobile chemotherapy unit will also be on-site for people to look around and refreshments will be available.

Jane Hall, Macmillan Specialist Radiographer, said: “Everyone is welcome to come and see what we do and ask questions.

“Many people don’t know what a radiographer does. If you have an accident and go to hospital, the chances are that you will see a diagnostic radiographer, who produces images that are used to diagnose injury or disease. However, therapy radiographers in oncology use precisely-targeted doses of radiation to treat cancer.”
