A TEAM of doctors and nurses from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals who care for acutely-ill people with cancer have been shortlisted for two major awards.

The service ensures that anyone with cancer who suddenly becomes unwell and needs urgent hospital treatment has input from specialists into their care within a couple of hours.

Now it has been shortlisted for a Macmillan Professionals Excellence Award, which recognises extraordinary leadership and service contribution by cancer care health professionals, and has reached the finals of Pfizer’s Quality in Care Excellence in Oncology Awards.
