We care for around 3,000 new cancer patients each year, whatever your diagnosis or treatment needs.
If you have a suspected cancer we will see you within two weeks of your referral and will work with you, your family and carers to ensure you have the best possible integrated care and treatment whether this is in hospital, the community, or at a cancer centre such as the Royal Sussex County Hospital.
We work closely with medical, surgical and nursing teams to support cancers relating to stomach, pancreas, oesophagus, colon and rectum (gastrointestinal), breast, gynaecological, head and neck, urological, lung, skin and blood.
We provide chemotherapy, cancer surgery and have an umbrella palliative care service for supportive care and work closely with local hospices. Radiotherapy is provided by the Royal Sussex County Hospital but delivered on the Eastbourne DGH site for most cancers.
Our inpatient Acute Oncology Service is for people with an emergency new diagnosis of cancer or complications relating to their care or treatment.
