Delivering new ways to improve life outcomes

Cancer treatment and care is constantly evolving and as a global organisation, GenesisCare keeps up-to-date with the latest evidence-based treatments from around the world, investing in those which will benefit our patients wherever they are.

We treat all types of cancer and provide a complete care plan, which includes many of the most innovative treatments as standard.

World-class care without delay

Our centre works in partnership with Spire Bristol Hospital which has comprehensive diagnostic facilities. Our rapid access pathways ensure that if you need treatment, this can start within days or even hours of a diagnosis.

We know that for many people cancer is a life-changing experience and our goal is to help you meet the emotional and psychological challenges in the most positive way possible through our partnership with cancer charity, Penny Brohn UK and our exercise medicine service.

We have plenty of free on-site parking – but if you have trouble getting to us, we can help with transport depending on location and the treatment you’re having.

Paying for treatment

GenesisCare is recognised by all private medical insurance providers, including Bupa, AXA PPP, Aviva and Vitality. We can help with insurance claims and also explain the costs associated with your treatment if you’d like to pay for your own care.

Our centre

Our centre in Bristol is a standalone outpatient facility dedicated to cancer care. With low footfall and flexible appointments it provides a safe environment for both our patients and staff.

Advanced treatments as standard

We use some of the most advanced techniques to treat all types of cancer, including advanced diagnostic imaging, precision radiotherapy techniques which are proven to be safe and effective for difficult-to-reach tumours while limiting dose to healthy tissue and high dose radiotherapy for shorter treatment duration.

It’s important that you have access to the best possible treatment for you and this may be one of the reasons you have chosen to use your private medical insurance or to fund your treatment yourself.

Newer radiotherapy systems for cancer treatment can have better results. But they are not available everywhere.

At GenesisCare we have the latest generation systems to deliver highly targeted radiotherapy for effective tumour treatments with fewer side effects. We provide:

  • More ‘controllable’ and accurate types of beam (VMAT and SABR/SRS)
  • Sophisticated inbuilt scanners to ‘see’ and constantly adjust where we are treating (SGRT and IGRT)
  • Special techniques to protect the heart muscle from coming in the path of the radiation beam (DIBH) for breast cancer treatment
  • Spacer insertions to protect the rectum during prostate cancer radiotherapy

Many of these services are not available everywhere but at GenesisCare in Cambridge we can give you access to all these latest radiotherapy treatments as standard – without any wait.

For some types of cancer, it’s possible to complete radiotherapy in fewer treatments (fractions) without reducing the effectiveness of treatment. This is called hypofractionation.

In some cases it’s possible to have radiotherapy for breast cancer in just five visits.

This is important because it ensures fewer visits, often fewer side effects and some cancers can respond well to a smaller number of higher doses.

Expert teams

Our highly experienced cancer experts work as teams to ensure that every patient has access to world-class cancer care within days of diagnosis.

At our Bristol centre, all our consultants also work for large regional NHS hospitals which means they have extensive experience and are familiar with the local healthcare networks.

Care focused on you

We are proud that so many of our patients rate our care as excellent* and we are committed to ensuring our patients receive the care they need without delay during the current pandemic.

It matters to us that our patients can take away some positive experience of their cancer and our experienced and friendly team at Bristol believes care should be focused on you, not just your condition.

You have all been so amazingly comforting and attentive when I have needed it Patient, Bristol

Demonstrating high standards

We are proud to have the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark – a framework which assesses whether cancer care environments meet the standards required by people living with cancer.

Achieving this mark demonstrates that our centre is welcoming and accessible to all. It shows we are respectful and supportive, that we listen to you and give you choice and control.
