Department of Clinical Oncology
The Department of Clinical Oncology is an integrated academic and clinical unit providing state-of-the-art cancer care to a catchment population of 1.8 million residents within the New Territories East Cluster (NTEC) of Hong Kong, as well as a referral centre for tertiary/quaternary cancer care for Hong Kong’s entire population. We are a high-volume cancer centre with an average 4,000 new patients being seen yearly.
We provide quality cancer care ranging from active treatment to palliative and psychosocial care and hospice services in both inpatient and outpatient settings. We use a multi-disciplinary approach delivered by a team of oncologists (medical, haematological, radiation and clinical), palliative medicine specialists, nurses, radiation therapists, medical physicists, clinical pharmacists and other health professionals to meet the needs of cancer patients.
Our academic interests are on clinical and basic researches for lung cancer, nasopharyngeal cancer, head & neck cancer, sarcoma/melanoma, genitourinary cancer, haematological, gastrointestinal & hepatocellular cancers.
