Welcome to the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead. We are located on Level 4 of the Red Zone.

The Unit is signposted as: Ward 10 (chemotherapy day unit ).

We are a nurse led unit that is staffed by specialist chemotherapy nurses. As well as administering chemotherapy, our nurses provide advice and support to you on the different steps of your treatment journey.

A wide variety of patients attend the unit for treatment under a number of specialties:

  • Cancer/solid tumours (Oncology)
  • Blood disorders (Haematology)
  • Problems with the digestive system (Gastroenterology)
