The Neuro-Oncology Psychology Service is part of the Department of Psychological Services. The aim of the service is to provide holistic neuropsychological assessment, rehabilitation and treatment to individuals experiencing cognitive, emotional or behavioural difficulties as a result of Brain and CNS tumours. The service is based within the Queens Oncology Centre at Castle Hill Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary. Patients are predominantly seen as outpatients within the Queen’s Centre, but also as inpatients on the wards at both Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital.
