What is the Pembroke Unit?
The Pembroke Unit is a specialist unit for the investigation and treatment of patients who may have either blood conditions or cancer. Patients who have blood conditions are seen in Haematology Outpatients and those with other cancers such as breast or bowel cancer are seen in Oncology Outpatients. Patients undergoing chemotherapy are normally treated in the day unit.
The aim of the Unit is to provide a rapid and efficient service in a supportive environment. We fully appreciate that this can be a worrying period in your life. Urgent referrals, including patients with suspected cancer, are always seen within 2 weeks. If your GP does not feel that your referral is urgent you will be seen within 8 weeks.
