Ward 23 at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is the designated Oncology and Haematology ward, with 30 beds in total. The ward provides care and treatment for patients with a diagnosis related to Haematology or Oncology. Patients may be receiving chemotherapy, radiotherapy, symptom control or palliative care. We also care for those who may be in with treatment related side-effects. The ward is a friendly, supportive environment with a dedicated day room for patients and their relatives to use, along with access to free television for every patient at their bedside.
