The UCLH Ambulatory Care (AC) service delivers a range of treatments which have historically been administered within the inpatient setting. Eligible patients receive their care in the AC area situated within the Cancer Centre and, if well enough, reside in a local hotel with or without a companion, rather than in the hospital. If appropriate patients may be able to continue their treatment at home. If patients require hospital admission during their treatment, an in-patient bed will be requested by the AC nurses through the haematology bed management team.

The Ambulatory Care service currently provides treatment for patients, with the following cancers:

  • Lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Leukaemia
  • Sarcoma.

All patients in ambulatory care have access to relevant clinical nurse specialist and support care services such as cancer complementary therapies and social welfare support.

There is also a Macmillan Information Centre within the Cancer Centre providing support and advice on cancer-related conditions to patients and relatives.
