We have a busy and varied chemotherapy suite; and a highly respected Apheresis service which includes the peripheral blood stem cell harvest programme, and therapeutic plasma exchange. We have received a great deal of positive publicity for our Ambulatory Care project, where patients undergo high dose chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants as a day-case while staying in a nearby hotel.
