The County Department of Medical Services and Public Health, in collaboration with The Ministry of Health, has established a chemotherapy unit at Longisa County Referral hospital. The hospital was selected because of the on-going activities on cancer screening and palliative care services.
The county has expanded the range of services offered in the unit by incorporating radiotherapy unit in the maternal unit at the hospital.
The department will soon be equipped with a CT scan donation from the USA which is expected to boost early diagnosis of cancer and other diseases. The unit is manned by a team of highly trained and skilled staff on oncology such as oncology nurses, clinical officers, medical officers, physicians, pharmacists among others
