Sheffield Teaching Hospitals treats all forms of cancer across its hospitals. This includes administering radiotherapy, chemotherapy, blood and bone marrow transfusions and carrying out vital surgery.
The specialist staff diagnose cancer as early as possible and then support patients and their families during every stage of their treatment and recovery so they can enjoy a good quality of life.
Pioneering research is also undertaken to increase knowledge so that the condition can be treated better in the future and save more lives.
The majority of treatment is delivered at Weston Park Hospital, which is one of only three dedicated cancer hospitals in the country and is a world leader in fighting cancer.
Patients with a brain tumour are able to share experiences and support each other during their incredibly difficult treatment by attending a support group. The group is funded by the Charity which provides premises and professional facilitators to run the group.
A group for carers is also funded to give partners, family members and friends the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the condition and how they can support someone with a tumour.
