The fees for all services (price per day, daily rate, meals, private room, etc.) are displayed at reception.
When you are admitted, please provide the telephone number of the person you wish to be contacted in case of an emergency.
You will be asked to nominate a trusted person to help you with the next steps and who can attend your appointments with you so as to help you choose the best treatment options for you.
This person must be an adult whom you are close to, who understands your wishes, whom you trust and, preferably, with whom you have discussed your health decisions. It can be a member of your family, a friend, a neighbour or your general practitioner. They will not replace the person whom you have chosen to be alerted in case of an emergency.
The Meetings and Information Centre (ERI) [Espace de Rencontres et d’Information] is a space to talk, obtain information and guidance and discuss cancer. It provides an opportunity for you to talk openly and take some time for yourself outside treatment sessions. Healthcare assistants are available to talk with you for free. No appointments are required and full anonymity is maintained. However, this is not intended to be a substitute for professional healthcare advice.
The ERI is open to patients, their families and anyone affected by disease, in full anonymity.
