Exploring the caseload, activities and outcomes of a regional acute oncology service

Aim:Acute oncology (AO) services have been operating in the UK
since 2010, after it was highlighted that cancer patients faced
unclear and inappropriate care pathways when presenting in
emergency departments1. AO seeks to optimise care for these
patients, with specific remits to reduce length of stay, avoid
unnecessary admissions and improve patient experience for
patients presenting as emergencies with complications of
treatment, complications of disease or a new cancer diagnosis2.
