Cancer Services

At Airedale NHS Foundation Trust we provide access to specialists for patients with suspected cancer to provide a quick and early diagnosis. Patients will be involved in all decision making and treated by dedicated cancer specialists with strong links to other cancer centres in the region. All patients diagnosed with cancer will be offered support from a clinical nurse specialist. A clinical nurse specialist is a qualified nurse who will be able to provide you with expert advice relating to your specific cancer.
