Ward 23 is based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. It is the county’s dedicated Adult Inpatient Oncology and Haematology Ward.

We have thirty beds, eight of which are side rooms. We also have a separate four bedded assessment bay that operates Monday to Friday only, this bay provides treatments listed below and patients needing therapeutic interventions.

The ward provides specialised care and treatments to patient who are diagnosed with Oncology or Haematology cancers / conditions. Treatments can include chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, symptom control for a patient’s cancer / condition and palliative care. Patients may also be admitted to our ward because they are experiencing side effects related to the diagnosis and / or treatments.

The ward boasts good relations with our day centre colleagues and we work collaboratively with the wider multi-disciplinary team to achieve high standards of care for all patients that are admitted to Ward 23.
