Chemotherapy

The Chemotherapy Suite at Darent Valley Hospital has a dedicated facility called the Pine Therapy Unit.  The suite has sixteen treatment chairs for chemotherapy and supportive care, three day beds, and a complementary therapy room. It also has two gardens where patients and family can relax in comfortable surroundings. 

 

The demand for chemotherapy and supportive care treatments for cancer patients and those with long term conditions has been increasing year on year. Many patients still attend for treatment years after their initial diagnosis. 

 

The Pine Unit is bright and airy, having views of the hospital grounds and a welcoming reception.  As well as the Trust and Carillion Services supporting the Pine Therapy Unit it is also supported by the local “After Breast Cancer” group, the Dartford Rotary Club and the Cancer Fighting Fund.


Post Chemotherapy Support Group: A support group meets on the last Tuesday of every month in the Pine Therapy Unit at Darent Valley Hospital from 7pm - 9pm. Everyone welcome (patients, carers and family members). For more details please contact Jan Agyurek - Chemotherapy Support Worker on 01322 428926.
