Our ELIGEBILITY criteria
Our help is provided to children on treatment for cancer in the Southend on sea area (this area is defined by the community nurse’s coverage out in our “at home” Hospital nursing team) The community nursing staff will be validating patients diagnosis and treatment status. By children we mean patients under 18, at the time of diagnosis. Oncology defined as the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, tumours and blood cancers included.
To refer a new or unknown Oncology Child to us please use contact form and as much information as you are able to provide. (our emails are not secure so please only use first names and no addresses or school of child/children)
Please understand, we have to run checks on word-of-mouth referrals so it can take some time to obtain the correct information and contact families. We do our very best to make sure this process doesn’t take too long.
