Late Effects

poster

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is the Primary Treatment Centre for children and teenagers with cancer from within South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire.

Children and young people who receive treatment for cancer may develop long term health problems as a result of their treatment.

The Late Effects Service in Sheffield was one of the first to be established in the UK and provides ongoing care for survivors of childhood cancer.

We hold monthly team meetings to discuss patients attending for LE follow-up at Sheffield Children’s Hospital and the Teenage and Young Adult LE clinic for older patients whose care has transitioned to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

These meetings are attended by a paediatric oncologist, paediatric endocrinologist, specialist nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, psychologist, CLIC Sargent Social Worker and an MDT co-ordinator.

All patients receive an individualised Long Term Follow Up Summary and Surveillance Plan on entry to the service.

The team

The Late Effects (LE) Service is led by Dr Anna Jenkins 0114 271 7366.

Tanya Urquhart, Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist in Late Effects and Claire Strong, Clinical Nurse Specialist in Late Effects, are the key workers for all children/young people within the LE service. Contact them on 0114 305 3676 bleep 209 or email tanya.urquhart@sch.nhs.uk or claire.strong@sch.nhs.uk.
