Oncology

Our Oncology department treats cancers in children and young people. Doctors working in Oncology work with teams in several parts of the hospital, but most patients will be treated on our specialist cancer ward.

Outpatients department

Oncology and Haematology Outpatients sees children with cancer who are well enough to stay at home and come into hospital for their treatment or for a check-up.

We treat around 250 new children and young people with cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours each year from around the West Midlands and beyond.

We offer specialist bone marrow transplants as well as haemophilia (bleeding disorders) and haemoglobinopathy services, which also see children from all over the UK.

Outpatient appointments in Waterfall House

From 1 August 2018, outpatient appointments will take place on the first floor of Waterfall house. Please proceed to reception on arrival. We will hold Oncology appointments in Outpatients 2 and 3, while Haemoglobinopathy and Haemophilia appointments will all be held in Outpatients 2.

Our team

Our team includes doctors, nurses (on the ward, in clinics and in the community), social workers, psychologists, play specialists, teachers and pharmacists. We also work with many other teams of doctors and nurses across the Children's hospital.

We see children and families at home, on the ward, in the outpatient clinic and in local hospitals.

Our consultants

Our department is led by a team of seven consultants. Together they are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of children and young people with all types of solid or brain cancers, and work closely with our colleagues in Haematology who care for children with cancers of the blood (leukaemias) and blood disorders. Our consultants are nationally and internationally recognised as leaders in the treatment and research of children’s cancer.
