Cancer services works across Barnsley to support the many different kinds of cancers which are diagnosed and treated within the Trust.
We have a lead manager/service improvement facilitator, lead cancer nurse and a lead clinician who work together across the Trust in order to provide Barnsley residents with the highest quality cancer services.
The different kinds of cancers – or tumour groups – currently managed in Barnsley are:
- Head and neck
- Upper gastro intestinal
Each of these cancers has a team of experts who attend multi-disciplinary team meetings where decisions are made regarding the care and treatment of cancer patients.
Barnsley is a cancer locality within the North Trent Cancer Network and as such works closely with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals – the cancer centre – to ensure Barnsley residents are provided with timely and appropriate care in the best setting.
