A dedicated new cancer service is set to deliver more personalised, efficient and streamlined care at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust.
Those suffering from thrombosis residing in the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent regions will now have access to the new service at Royal Stoke University Hospital that has been launched to help the approximate 20% of cancer patients that are at an increased risk of developing the condition.
