Consultant Specialities: Oncology

St Bernadettes oncology ward comprises a twenty bed inpatient and six bed out-patient facility, designed to meet the needs and deliver treatment to any patient requiring chemotherapy or palliative care.

The consultant oncologist is based on the ward and the hospital offers a complete oncology/haematology service, supported by surgeons, physicians and radiologists.

The ward is staffed by specialized and dedicated nurses who are greatly experienced in nursing people with cancer. There is also a team of specialist nurses who provide advice and support to people with specific problems.

There is a patient led support group ‘Cunamh’, and they provide support, information and assistance to patients and families.

The ward itself is totally air conditioned and the system is designed to minimise the risk of infections to vulnerable patients.

The service is designed so that a person with a diagnosis of cancer can receive all of their care, throughout the course of their illness, under the care of the ward.
