Oncology is the medical term for cancer services. The oncology service at The Holly Hospital includes outpatient clinics, diagnostic radiology, chemotherapy and supportive cancer care.

We offer a comfortable and friendly environment with care from a multidisciplinary team of experts tailored to suit your individual needs. Our specialist nurses have extensive experience in a wide range of malignancies, providing support for patients from diagnosis through to treatment and follow-up.

Should you require surgical or interventional radiology procedures all our patient bedrooms are private ensuite rooms with comfortable seating for any friends or family.

Chemotherapy treatments are also given inpatient bedrooms by our nurse specialists. We also have an onsite pathology laboratory and pharmacy with experienced staff contributing towards the diagnosis, management and safe delivery of chemotherapy.

We also offer screening for breast cancer, bowel cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer.

Nurse Specialists

We have two specialist nurses with extensive experience in a wide range of malignancies. They are working together to develop the oncology service and promote and provide high clinical standards and an excellent service to oncology patients at The Holly Hospital.

Joanne Hill is our Breast Care Clinical Nurse Specialist, with specialist qualifications in oncology, breast cancer care and lymphodema management, she has 13 years oncology experience including clinical research. Joanne set up the breast care service at The Holly five years ago, gaining BUPA accreditation as an approved breast cancer centre. She provides expert care to women with breast cancer and those at risk of developing the disease.

Louise Goodey is our Oncology Nurse Specialist. She has 15 years experience in haematology oncology, with the last six years including experience with solid tumours at Parkside Hospital. At Parkside she worked in the chemotherapy day unit and on the inpatient ward as Haematology CNS for Prof Ray Powles. Louise will be providing specialised nursing care to patients receiving chemotherapy as well as caring for oncology inpatients at The Holly.

Our Nurse Specialists provide 24-hour phone advice and support for patients and ward staff, with out-of-hours cover to the ward for emergency admissions. They also both have strong links with our surrounding NHS trusts.

Support services

Our Diagnostic Centre offers MRI, CT, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, x-ray including a mobile unit, image intensifier, bone density scanner and we have recently invested in MicroDose digital mammography as well as a Gamma probe. We are currently exploring the possibility of acquiring a PET scanner and nuclear medicine onsite but in the meantime refer patients to the PET/CT Centre at Barts and The London NHS Hospital. We provide daily reporting with a turn around time of 48 hours and fast track reporting of urgent cases. Additionally, an on-call radiologist and remote reporting is available for urgent cases on a 24-hour a day basis.

Finally, we have an onsite pathology laboratory, with experienced staff providing an efficient onsite service that contributes towards diagnosis, management and helping to ensure the safe delivery of chemotherapy.
