Weston Park Cancer Hospital
Whitham Road, Sheffield, S10 2SJ Tel: +44 (0)114 226 5000
Weston Park Hospital is part of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital specialises in the treatment of cancer and is one of three purpose built specialist cancer (or oncology) hospitals in the United Kingdom.
Patients are referred to the hospital for a full range of non-surgical cancer services, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy from the South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire catchment area of two million people.
In April 1995, Weston Park was designated a cancer centre and the surrounding district hospitals became cancer units. This was on the back of recommendations from a government report called the Calman Hine Report, the purpose of which was to provide a uniformly high standard of care as close to the patient’s home as possible.
Cancer units now provide services for the more common cancers including breast, lung and colorectal cancer whilst the cancer centres (including Weston Park) provide these services plus more specialist services for complex conditions for patients from the whole region.
The hospital is divided into two directorates: Chemotherapy Services and Radiation Services. Both services are managed by a team who can make local decisions in a timely manner and are led by clinical directors who are also part of the wider hospital trust management team.
