Information

The Day Oncology Department at the Bon Secours Hospital Dublin aims to provide our patients with the best possible care in a welcoming, comfortable and supportive environment.

The Medical Oncology Department administers a full range of Systemic Cancer Therapies  - Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Hormone Therapy and Palliative Care. Patients are referred to the Unit by one of three Medical Oncologists who liaise closely with our Surgical colleagues on a patient by patient basis.

  • Prof Oscar Breathnach
  • Prof Liam Grogan
  • Dr Patrick Morris

Treatment is tailored according to the individual patient and the type of cancer as prescribed by the Medical Oncologist. It is delivered by our team of specialist and skilled nurses and our medical team with sensitivity and understanding. The length of the chemotherapy treatment depends on the patients’ specific regime but as a patient you will be advised of this by your consultant and nurse on the day.

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to treat cancer. It can be used to:

  • Cure cancer
  • Keep cancer from spreading
  • Slow a cancers growth
  • To kill cancer cells that may have spread to other areas of the body
  • To relieve symptoms caused by cancer

Most people are able to go about their normal activities. If you are still working, please advise the oncologyy team in the unit who will try where possible to arrange your appointment around your working day. Please note that this might not always be possible but the team will do their best to facilitate it.

Please be sure to ask our team any questions you may have about your treatment, its effects and any problems you may have during your treatment.
