Myeloid Service

We treat and care for people with cancers of the bone marrow.

These include:

  • Acute and Chronic Leukaemia
  • Myelodysplasia (MDS)
  • Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN)

We provide specialist services for people with myeloid cancers from the Oxford region and across the Thames Valley.

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

A Nurse Specialist will see you at the time of your diagnosis and will be available throughout your treatment to talk to you, and those close to you, about your diagnosis and care plan.

We will provide you with information to take home and read and you can contact your Nurse Specialist at any time if you have further questions.

All people with a new diagnosis of a myeloid disorder are discussed at our weekly multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings.

Our Pathologists, Radiologists, Nurses, Consultant Haematologists and Oncologists will discuss your individual illness and your treatment plan.

Ambulatory Care Unit

Some people with myeloid disorders will have treatment in the Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU).

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.

Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU)

ACU treatment is not suitable for everyone - your consultant will advise you.

Out of hours support

People having myeloid treatment have access to our Triage Assessment Team. Triage provides out of hours advice for people who are worried about treatment side effects or who feel unwell.
