Haematology and oncology appointments

oncology appointment

Haematology & Oncology has a separate outpatient area in the Roald Dahl Centre.

Children and their families attend this department for day case chemotherapy treatments and outpatient clinic appointments for a variety of blood disorders and childhood cancers. The centre is open Monday to Friday only.

Many treatments for cancer are given as outpatient or as day case treatment. We have a quiet area for having treatment and a vibrant waiting area with daily craft activities and a dedicated nursing and play specialist team based in the department.

Our CLIC Sargent social work team is also based in the Haematology & Oncology outpatient department and is available during clinics for advice and assistance.

Outpatient journey

The Haematology & Oncology Department is on Floor A of Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

On arrival please report to our receptionist who will inform you of any tests or assessments that may be required and ask if you need any help from our multidisciplinary team. This may include:

  • blood tests
  • X-ray/MRI scan/CT scan
  • dental review
  • mobility review
  • dietician review
  • play therapy
  • CLIC Sargent team
  • nurse specialist team

If you are aware that your child requires a blood test please attend 30 minutes earlier than your appointment time (this allows time for the blood test results to be taken and processed).

Chemotherapy can be given as a ‘bolus’ over a few minutes or you may be required to stay for a number of hours. Please discuss this with your child’s consultant or nurse specialist if you are unsure of the treatment your child requires or the length of time your child may need to be in our department receiving chemotherapy treatment.

How to find us

The Haematology & Oncology Clinic is on Floor A, accessed via the blue lifts or across the courtyard from the main entrance / Outpatients Department.
