The way we are providing our Oncology 24-hour helpline is changing.

As of 31 January 2024, the Oncology helpline will now be answered by experienced Oncology Nurses at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT).

  • Oncology helpline: 01422 222 999

Please call the above helpline if you are concerned about side-effects of treatment you are experiencing or are concerned about any symptoms from your cancer.

Our experienced colleagues at CHFT will triage your concerns and then help direct you to the most appropriate service. This may be either within the Mid Yorkshire Teaching NHS Trust Hospitals, or if necessary, at a CHFT hospital. This change should not affect your experience or the care you receive.

The Oncology Nurse will provide you with expert advice and will hand over any concerns to Mid Yorkshire staff. Should you require a face-to-face assessment, the nurse answering your call will decide on the best place for that to take place.
