BRADFORD’S haematology and oncology services have moved into a new home, which is officially being opened today.

The new unit - ‘The Meadows Unit’ - is based at Eccleshill Community Hospital, part of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and houses haematology and oncology outpatients’ clinics and an oncology day unit in refurbished surroundings.

The Trust’s Chief Executive, Mel Pickup, and one of the service’s longest standing patients will officially open the unit.

She said: “A large, dedicated area has been totally transformed, fully re-decorated and renovated and specially designed with all the comforts of our patients in mind. This is really going to make a big difference for our patients.”
