Cancer treatment continues during COVID-19

Cancer treatment at OUH continues to be provided during the COVID-19 pandemic in line with national advice issued to trusts by NHS England and NHS Improvement(NHSE&I) on 30 March.

Within the Oxford hospitals, multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) of clinicians for all cancer tumour groups have used this guidance in their work.

Cancer surgery within OUH continues to be carried out primarily within the Oncology & Haematology Centre at the Churchill Hospital, a regional centre of excellence, but also at the John Radcliffe Hospital and at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre for specific tumours.

independent hospital capacity at the Manor Hospital is being utilised and OUH is working closely with other providers within the Thames Valley Cancer Alliance to ensure that cancer patients can have their surgery in as timely a way as possible where there is spare capacity to carry this out.
