Lymphoma Service

The Lymphoma Service is based in the Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.

We also provide services at the Horton General Hospital.

We provide specialist services for people from the Oxford region and across the Thames Valley. Your care will be provided by a team of national and international experts in lymphoma treatment, and Nurse Specialists with many years of experience caring for people with lymphoma.

We know how stressful it is for people to find out they have lymphoma. We will aim to provide you with all the support you need during this time.

A Nurse Specialist will see you at your first appointment. We will talk to you and those close to you about your diagnosis and possible treatment. We will provide you with information to take home and read. You can contact your Nurse Specialist at any time if you have further questions.

All people with a new diagnosis of lymphoma are discussed at our weekly multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings. Your case will be discussed with Pathologists, Radiologists, Nurses, Consultant Haematologists and Oncologists.

Lymphoma treatment

The treatment you have will depend on the type of lymphoma you have.

Some people will not need any treatment, but will be actively monitored with regular check-ups. For more information about 'active surveillance' or 'active monitoring' please visit:

Active monitoring (watch and wait) - Lymphoma action

Treatment for lymphoma is most likely to be a combination of chemotherapy and antibody therapies. Some people will be treated with radiotherapy. For more information about these treatments please visit:

Outpatient Clinic

We will see you regularly in our Outpatient Clinic.

Some of these appointments might be over the telephone. For more information about telephone and video appointments please read our patient leaflet:

Video and telephone appointments - Information for patients in haematology and oncology (pdf)

Face to face outpatient appointments are held in the Outpatient Department in the Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Churchill Hospital.

The Lymphoma Service has clinics at the following times:

Tuesdays 9.00am - 12.30pm

Thursdays 2.00pm - 5.30pm

Day Treatment Unit

Brodey Centre

We also offer day treatments at the Horton General Hospital in the Brodey Centre.

Haematology Ward

Some people with lymphoma will require admission to hospital for part of their treatment. The Haematology Ward is on Level 1 of the Cancer and Haematology Centre.

For more information about the Haematology Ward please read our patient leaflet:

Ambulatory Care Unit

Some people with lymphoma will have treatment in the Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU). The ACU is a four bed unit on Level 1 of the Cancer and Haematology Centre.

Some treatments require extra monitoring, or are given in higher doses. The ACU allows you to have some or all of these treatments without being admitted to hospital. You will be able to stay in your own home, or our hospital-based flat. You will travel to ACU each day for treatment and assessment.

ACU treatment is not suitable for everyone. Your consultant will advise you about whether your treatment might be suitable for ACU.

For more information about the Ambulatory Care Unit please read our patient leaflet:
