In this video, learn about what happens when you have chemotherapy at a day clinic. Having chemotherapy in the day clinic can take anything from a few minutes to a few hours through a drip. You might have your treatment through a:

– Cannula – a small tube put into a vein in your hand or arm and used for chemotherapy drugs that you can have fairly quickly
– Central line – a tube which is put into a vein in your neck (short term) or chest (long term)
– PICC line – a type of central line that is put into a vein in your arm
– Portacath or port – a small chamber that sits under your skin at the end of the central line in your chest

You’ll usually be at the day clinic for a few hours.
