About the Southampton oncology unit
The Southampton General Hospital oncology unit is one of only 12 regional cancer centres in the UK, serving a population of around 1.7m people.
The unit is a leader in cancer research and treatment development. Up to 500 patients each year take part in national and international trials, giving them access to new drugs before they become widely available.
Cancer care is one of the Trust's key services. We are developing as a global centre of excellence and treating more and more patients from outside the Wessex area.
Southampton Hospital Charity has over 350 funds so that donations go exactly where supporters want them to. The money raised by Hats That Help will go to Our C3 Hamwic ward which is where around 80% of our chemotherapy outpatients receive treatment. The money raised will then go towards purchasing a vein locator for the unit.
The centre is renowned for excellent cancer treatment and specialises in:
  • breast cancer
  • gynaecological cancers
  • lymphoma - a cancer that affects white blood cells and the immune system
  • melanoma - a malignant tumour normally found on the skin
  • sarcoma - cancer of connective or supportive tissue such as bone, cartilage, muscle
  • testicular cancer
It also treats all other kinds of cancer, including:
  • brain cancers
  • gastro-intestinal cancer
  • head and neck cancer
  • leukaemia
  • lung cancer
  • myeloma
  • urological cancer
We are the NHS at its best, and your support can make a real difference - Thank you.
