Services provided at the Cancer Centre
In the centre patients can receive brachytherapy, radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments.
Patients usually attend as outpatients to receive chemotherapy rather than being admitted to hospital. They can attend 3A in the Cancer Centre or the Bridgewater Suite in Belfast City Hospital Tower.
Chemotherapy can also be given to inpatients in the Cancer Centre or on the Haematology Ward 10 North in the Tower.
Radiotherapy and Brachytherapy
The Northern Ireland Cancer Centre is currently the only place in Northern Ireland that delivers radiotherapy and brachytherapy. Patients may receive radiotherapy or brachytherapy as an outpatient or as an inpatient.
