I will be visiting Lucca mid Dec 2013. Does anyone know of a hematologist/oncologist that I can contact for ongoing treatment I require ? Thanks

Assuming that you need an English-speaking one, you could try …usembassy.gov/acs/…doctors-florence.html or possibly ask your local specialist for a recommendation in Italy.

Most likely you will have to go to the Oncology Unit at Campo di Marte Hospital, Via dell’Ospedale 1, 55100 Lucca (http://www.usl2.toscana.it/visualizza_dipartimento.php?id=18 - see also http://www.ittumori.it/ITA/dipartimenti-oncologici/ausl02-lucca.shtml); for map, yelp.com/biz/ospedale-campo-di-marte-lucca

There's also a day hospital in Lido di Camaiore: …toscana.it/attivita-ospedale/…

Be aware of a very Italian peculiarity - no one at a hospital will inject you with anything they haven't prescribed, even if you're at risk of dying through lack of the injection. On the other hand, that means that every second person in Italy is expert at injection. I'm only slightly exaggerating.

tuscan is right. DIY injections are common in Italy.

Hi, if there are problems in Lucca's Hospital, you can try to ask to Pisa Hospital, that is a University Hospital, easily reachable from Lucca by train. I will send you the e-mail address by private message.
