The hospital is also home to the only Radiotherapy Department in South Yorkshire, and has an internationally recognised reputation as a centre of excellence in the fight against cancer. Over 18,000 patients are currently under the care of Weston Park Hospital, which equates to over 150,000 individual patient visits each year.
The hospital cares for approximately…
- 2,500 people from Rotherham
- 4,900 people from Sheffield
- 4,350 people from Doncaster
- 3,400 people from Chesterfield
- 2,300 people from Barnsley
Over 200 clinical trials are currently taking place at the Cancer Clinical Trials Centre and thousands of people received advice and support from the Cancer Support Centre last year.
