Health and Safety at the Cancer Centre

Infection Prevention and Control

Hand hygiene in the health care setting is recognised as the single most important procedure for preventing the spread of infection. When hands become visibly soiled, we ask patients to wash hands with soap and water; otherwise, we advise all patients to wash or use antibacterial hand gel when entering and leaving the campus. Please feel free to ask anyone to wash their hands or use a hand gel before coming into contact with you.

In the event that you are ill (including flu-like symptoms, vomiting, diarrhoea, etc.) we ask that you contact our reception staff before you come to the Cancer Centre on 051 337444. Your clinical team will review your case and contact you to let you know if you should attend while ill. If any of your friends or family are ill, we ask that they do not accompany you to the Cancer Centre until their symptoms are resolved.

Smoking

A smoke-free environment is enforced within Whitfield Clinic and the Cancer Centre for staff, patients, and visitors. Smoking is prohibited throughout the entire building and is only permitted on the grounds within the designated smoking areas.

Children

In the interest of the health and safety of children visiting the centre and for the comfort of our patients, we ask that children are supervised at all times.

Valuables

Please note that all valuables and possessions are the sole responsibility of the owner. We encourage you to leave any valuables at home while you attend the Cancer Centre.
