Fortuneswell Ward is a 14-bed adult inpatient ward specifically developed for the care of patients who have cancer and malignant haematology disease.
Many patients who have cancer will undergo intensive treatments such as chemotherapy which can be accompanied by side effects. Some of these side effects and complications require the patient to be admitted to hospital for further management. Whether having treatment or not, some patients with cancer will develop complications associated with the cancer itself and again, this may require admission to hospital for appropriate care and treatment.
A key benefit for patients who are managed on the Fortuneswell Ward is that they will be cared for by a team of nurses and other health professionals who have a keen interest and desire to work with patients affected by cancer. Many of the team already have experience and skills in caring for this patient group. This expertise and keen interest together underpins the provision of high quality care.
