Chemotherapy and Day Treatment Unit

Where are we?

The Seamoor chemotherapy and day treatment unit is a purpose built unit situated on level 1 at North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple.

How big is the unit?

The Seamoor unit is a purpose built department consisting of an outpatient clinic area and an outpatient treatment area.

The outpatient clinics are consultant led by specialists in the field of both oncological and haematological cancers. This area consists of 7 consultant rooms and 2 quiet rooms for patients or relatives to use. Sometimes the consultant rooms are used for input with Macmillan finance specialists or by our team of counsellors.

The outpatient treatment area is a nurse-led department consisting of an open plan treatment area containing 14 patient chairs. Alongside this there are 3 private side rooms which are used primarily for triage or procedures which require patient privacy. This area also houses the Acute Oncology Service (AOS) office which is a specialist nurse-led triage service.

There is a large waiting room for patients and carers.

We treat around 30 patients a day.

Unit opening times

The unit is currently open from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Friday.
