An outpatient clinic serves as the patient’s first point of contact with an oncologist. Referral is not a prerequisite for attending an oncology outpatient clinic. However, patients are recommended to come prepared with preliminary test results that may point to the suspicion of neoplastic disease. This information is validated during registration at an oncology outpatient clinic.
Appointments at oncology outpatient clinics in the NU-MED Group centers are financed as part of the universal health benefits system, via the National Health Fund. Other outpatient clinics also operate within our structures such as hematology, endocrinology and otolaryngology outpatient clinics.
