Orkney and Shetland. The Aberdeen and North Centre for Haematology, Oncology and Radiography (ANCHOR) unit is a fully funded NHS department at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Foresterhill which brings together experts and specialist nursing support to coordinate the care of

patients with all forms of cancer, leukaemia and benign blood disorders such as haemophilia.
