Anyone who wants to come along to Lincoln County Hospital to find out more about how cancer is treated or would like a look around the department, can pop in on Saturday 4 November any time between 9.30am and 12pm.

Radiotherapy and oncology treatment and support staff who work in the department will be on hand on the day to answer any questions. Visitors can take a tour of the department and see the radiotherapy treatment machines and equipment in action. As well as the radiotherapy department, the chemotherapy treatment suite will also be open to visitors.

Alongside meeting the Trust’s dedicated staff, there will be refreshments and information displays to enjoy. The team can also offer information and advice to anyone interested in the various careers available within oncology and radiotherapy.

Mel King, Macmillan Specialist Radiographer at ULHT, said: “Our oncology department serves the wider Lincolnshire population and we want to allow an opportunity for people who live further afield to see the department outside of its working hours.

“Any patients waiting to attend for treatment at the unit are welcome to come and ask any questions so we can help put them at ease before they begin their treatment. It is also a great opportunity to learn about how we look after our patients.

“For anyone who has been thinking about a career in healthcare, it will also give an insight into how our teams work. Previous open days have been really popular and we are really glad to open our doors again and spend some valuable extra time with our patients and visitors.”
