Welcome to East Kent Hospital University Foundation Trust Cancer Services.

Cancer care is provided by multi-disciplinary teams that consist of consultant medical oncologists, consultant clinical oncologists, consultant surgeons, consultant physicians, pathologists, radiologists and Macmillan clinical nurse specialists. Our teams work in partnership with neighbouring trusts as well as specialist centres; this ensures our patients have access to state of the art assessment, diagnostic and treatment facilities.

Cancer Care Line

  Contact The Cancer Care Line:  01227 868666

 (Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm)

This is a central helpline for all patients who have come into contact with a Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist or the Macmillan Acute Oncology Team. Not all people that are given this number have cancer, some maybe undergoing investigations to rule it out.

The people that answer your calls are not medically trained and in order for them to direct you to correct person/ team, they will ask for some clinical and personal information.

The Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialists run designated phone clinics, therefore if appropriate you will be booked onto the next available telephone clinic which may not be the same day. 

If the Cancer Care Line Co-ordinator's triage indicates you require urgent clinical advice, you will be put through to the specialist nurse of the day.
