Avanti Architects are developing a new state of the art Chemotherapy Unit at Ulster Hospital with Macmillan Cancer Support and The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust, who have invested over £3m in the project.
At a recent launch event, plans were unveiled for Avanti’s new hospital building which will include a chemotherapy unit with purpose-built assessment and treatment areas; a satellite pharmacy; and a Macmillan information and support centre.
The New facility will drastically improve treatment and care for cancer patients in the area and is due for completion in summer of 2020.

“Cancer diagnosis and treatment can have a truly devastating impact upon a person’s whole life – their health, money, family and work. The environment in which we’re treated can have a significant impact on our outcomes, as well as our experiences. That’s why it’s important to create welcoming spaces that support comfort, dignity and wellbeing. By improving the cancer care environment and bringing together invaluable support services, we are helping people to access the high-quality, person-centred care that’s right for them.”
