 Formulary Chapter 8: Malignant disease and immunosuppression - Full Section
Notes:
All Chemotherapy in HDFT is prescribed using the ChemoCare electronic prescribing system.  Only Consultants or Registrars may initiate chemotherapy.

If any patients are admitted to the Trust on oral chemotherapy the admitting doctor must contact the Oncology/Haemtology team to determine whether the treatment should be continued.

If the original prescriber is not available or cannot be contacted the oral anticancer medicine must be not be prescribed or administered until it is confirmed that it is clinically appropriate and safe to do so.

Further guidance on oral chemotherapy can be found in the Oral Anti-Cancer Medicines Handbook on the Trust Intranet.

Guidance on symptom management in palliative care can be found in The Yorkshire Cancer Network and North East Yorkshire & Humber Clinical Alliance guidelines.
