Windhoek Central’s oncology ward: ‘We are one small family’
The Centre also provides Oncology input to local Cancer units. Here at the Trust we are the specialist centre for the region providing radiotherapy treatment and an oncology service.
We deliver a safe and effective cancer service working closely with clinical leads across 13 tumour sites to give care and treatment that is second to none. The oncology Unit houses a 32 bedded ward which provides care and treatment for individuals with a wide range of malignant disease; these include chemotherapy, radiotherapy, brachytherapy and biological immunotherapy. The nursing team have specialist training and skills in cancer care and work a variety of shifts to provide continuity of care. The Unit is a training area for Pre and Post reg nurses at Coventry University and the ward staff provide ongoing teaching, education, and mentorship to members of the ward team.

The Unit is able to offer patients, relatives and carers support and advice over the telephone if there are concerns when the patient is at home.
