A message for our patients - Cancer Care Ontario flags variation in chemotherapy doses and Southlake patients are not impacted

Our practices at Southlake deliver the intended dose to our cancer patients and none of our patients have been impacted.

Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) has flagged a variation in processes when administering low volume, high concentration of three specific chemotherapy drugs which may lead to variation in the dose delivered to the patient.

Southlake conducted a full review of our processes as soon as we learned of this issue.

Our practices at Southlake deliver the intended dose to our cancer patients and none of our patients have been impacted.

We assure all our cancer patients that we have not identified any concerns with the delivery of chemotherapy medication as part of our patients’ treatment.

If you are a patient, family member or caregiver and you have concerns or questions please call our hotline to leave a voice message with your name and contact number. 

We will have your physician or a member of your healthcare team return your call within 24 hours to address any questions or concerns you may have.
