our approach & expertise


shared care arrangements

Many of our patients live some distance away from UCH. It is not always practical to travel up to UCH for all aspects of treatment, so for each patient we make arrangements with a named consultant at their local hospital to share care for treatment including antibiotics for infections, blood transfusions, and sometimes for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We have recently introduced patient-held Shared Care folders which contain details of a patient's diagnosis and treatment, contact details for UCH, and contact details at the Shared Care Hospital. With these folders, we aim to improve the communication between UCH and the Shared Care Hospital.
