Acute Oncology Service

The Acute Oncology Service (AOS) is designed for patients who require unplanned support, complications of their cancer or side effects of cancer treatment. 

 

The AOS provides assessment and advice to patients who are admitted to hospital mainly via the Emergency department. We also care and support patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer whilst they are an inpatient and ensure they are on the correct pathway.  AOS is a 7 day working service with a daily ward round which includes an AOS Clinical Nurse Specialist and an Oncology Consultant. We work closely with all Oncology teams and liaise with the correct team and inform them when a patient under their care has been admitted to hospital.
