Gynaecological Cancer Services
Northampton General Hospital is a gynaecology oncology centre, providing gynaecological cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy to women of Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. Referrals are made from the local hospitals Kettering General and Milton Keynes General.
The gynaecological oncology team consists of two gynaecological oncology surgeons, Mr Duncan and Mr Alexander-Sefre, two clinical oncologists, Dr Stewart and Dr Mathews and two nurses, Claire Campbell, Macmillan gynaecological oncology clinical nurse specialist and Anita York, Macmillan gynaecological oncology nurse.
Claire and Anita are available to support women and their families when a gynaecological cancer is suspected or diagnosed. We are then available to provide emotional and psychological support through all stages of treatment (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy and follow-up if required). We also provide written information to help explain the treatment you are receiving.
A number of different people are involved in these treatments, Claire and Anita act as the link between all these people and can also put you in contact with other sources of help and support.
