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
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.
