ONCOLOGY SERVICES (CHEMOTHERAPY)
Due to the increased demands made by the community for this much needed service, Joint Medical Holdings recently opened oncology units at City and Ascot Park Hospitals. We are dedicated to providing a high level of care to patients throughout Durban and the surrounding areas. One of the ways we do this is through our exceptional cancer care program of providing state of the art services for the management of cancer through the use of chemotherapy and allied drugs. The team of highly experienced oncologists’ work with a multidisciplinary team and with a range of supportive care departments including mental and behavioural sciences, clinical nutrition, palliative care and physiotherapy.
Arrangements have been made for the supply of the necessary chemotherapy drugs for in-patients. Arrangements have also been made for in-patients who are requiring radiation therapy to be transported to the local radiation therapy facilities.
