Introduction

Salisbury District Hospital has the facilities to diagnose and treat a range of cancers including:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Cancer of Unknown Primary
  • Gynaecological cancer
  • Haematological cancer
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Upper Gastrointestinal cancer
  • Urological cancer

SFT provides inpatient, day care and outpatent services for all areas of cancer treatment. Where particular or highly specialised treatments are required, patients are referred to the appropriate tertiary centre where those specialist services can be provided. We also work incredibly closely with our colleagues in primary care and the community.

There are multidisciplinary teams for each type of cancer. These teams include colleagues such as:

  • Lead cancer clinician
  • Surgeons / Doctors
  • Oncologists
  • Clinical Nurse Specialists
  • Radiologists
  • Histopathologists
  • Multi-disciplinary Team (MDT) co-ordinator
  • Palliative care

These colleagues meet weekly to discuss each newly diagnosed case in order to agree the best treatment plan and next steps.

SFT also has a dedicated Cancer Support Team who are on hand to provide holistic, practical support, advice and guidance to people affected by cancer, including families and friends.

Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
