Statement from Acting and Clinical Directors

A pair of hands in gloves use a needle and medication.

As we recover from the effects of the COVID pandemic many more cancer patients are being treated. However, we are aware that patients are having to wait longer than usual to start chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to treat everyone as quickly as possible, including giving treatments on Saturdays. We are also working closely with our health board colleagues to monitor the situation and plan ahead.

We understand that you may be concerned about this and have questions you’d like to ask us.  We have set up a specific phone line to help with this. Please contact them on telephone number 02920196844 or email We will do everything we can to answer your questions.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding.
