Cancer Services

Cancer services at the Trust provide diagnostic and supportive care, such as surgery and chemotherapy, for common cancers locally across the Trust hospital sites.

Cancer services at DBTH

Our experienced and skilled professionals specialise in many disciplines and come together to work as multi-disciplinary teams (MDT) to ensure the best possible care for patients.

All teams include a clinical nurse specialist to support patients through all stages of their diagnosis and treatment. The teams meet regularly to make recommendations for individualised care which is discussed with each patient at a clinic appointment or over the phone.

The service sits within the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Cancer Alliance which is committed to helping more people to survive cancer and to support people in the region to live well with and beyond cancer.

The Trust works closely with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to provide treatments for patients with less common cancers and radiotherapy.

Supporting you after a cancer diagnosis

We want to reassure you that your Cancer Team are available to answer any questions and concerns that you may have. Our Cancer Information Centres at Doncaster and Bassetlaw offer support and are able to address queries that you may have.  They can direct you to information on a range of areas relating to cancer, please don’t hesitate to contact them.

If you or a loved one have recently been given a cancer diagnosis, or are going through cancer treatment, you may not be aware of the wide range of specialist care and support available to you. You will find more about what you can access locally, as well as through regional and national cancer support through the Cancer Services guide here:
