Who provides local cancer services?
Our cancer services are provided by NHS Fife with support from the Fife Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP). Services are based across our main hospital sites, Queen Margaret Hospital, Dunfermline and Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy with additional specialist services provided by NHS Tayside.
We are also proud to be a part of the SCAN or South East Scotland Cancer Network. This is a very useful and informative site for anyone in Fife affected by cancer. It includes details of local services in the South East of Scotland for those who live in the Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, Fife or Lothian, and links to national cancer websites. It also provides useful video content such as Lothian's Chemotherapy Information Treatment video and links to information by type of cancer to various cancer support charities and organisations.
