Changing the experience of cancer care

We are the UK’s leading private cancer specialist and we are dedicated to providing the latest evidence-based treatments from around the world, in a high quality, safe environment – because cancer is all we do.

At our new state-of-the-art centre at Cromwell Hospital in London we have the world’s most advanced radiotherapy techniques and provide specialist treatments.

The centre specialises in complex and difficult-to-treat tumours including cancers of the brain and spine, abdomen, head and neck and lung, as well as breast and prostate cancer.

It is designed around three of the latest generation systems in the world – Gamma Knife Icon, Varian Edge, MRIdian MR linac – each capable of treating a different type of cancer. Having these three machines under one roof makes our centre Europe’s most advanced radiotherapy facility.

You will receive the very best personalised care and a consultant-led treatment plan which also embraces life-changing approaches such as exercise medicine and wellbeing therapies.

Our aim is to change the way people experience cancer treatment and care and we go a little further to ensure you can achieve the best possible life outcome.

Mary
After years of running from my cancer I’ve been thrown a lifeline Mary, patient at GenesisCare

64-year-old Mary from Staffordshire was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in 2014 and had been treated with surgery, conventional radiotherapy and chemotherapy when a scan revealed that her cancer had unfortunately spread to her liver. Her doctors felt neither surgery or conventional radiotherapy were an option because there were three tumours throughout her liver.

Instead Mary was able to have treatment on the MRIdian – a ground-breaking new technique which targets difficult-to-treat tumours – at the GenesisCare centre in Oxford. The MRIdian is a type of linear accelerator – a machine that directs beams of energy to permanently destroy cancer cells – combined with an in-built MRI scanner.

Mary underwent a course of five sessions over two weeks, with very few side effects other than a little tenderness. After 3 months an MRI scan showed that the liver tumours were almost completely gone, and a scan at six months showed no active cancer.

Mary has since been able to work full-time in her IT consultancy and spend time gardening. Ongoing drug therapy will help maximise the possibility of controlling her cancer. She said: “After years of running away from my cancer and different therapies, I feel I’ve been thrown a lifeline by receiving this revolutionary treatment.”

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.

Our centre works in partnership with Bupa Cromwell 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 are committed to ensuring our patients receive the care they need without delay during the current pandemic.

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 are easily accessible by public transport and there is parking nearby – but if you have trouble getting to us, we can help with transport depending on location and the treatment you’re having.

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 London centre, many of our consultants are renowned in their field, working at prestigious university-affiliated teaching hospitals. This means they have extensive experience and are familiar with the London healthcare networks.

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

GenesisCare always considers the patient rather than focusing solely on the treatment. This is truly inspirational and has certainly contributed to my recovery - I will be forever grateful Patient, London

Ground-breaking radiotherapy treatments

Our new £20million radiotherapy centre at Bupa Cromwell Hospital in London offers the most advanced radiotherapy techniques available today.

The cutting-edge technology and latest treatments are different from conventional radiotherapy because they offer:

As well as innovative radiotherapy treatment, we also offer organ-sparing treatments, advanced computer imaging and sophisticated AI planning systems, which means personalised treatment plans can be started within days of diagnosis for all cancer types.

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) uses powerful beams of radiation to destroy cancer cells in a few short treatments. It is often called ‘brain-sparing’ surgery because of its ability to protect healthy brain tissue and preserve quality of life in people needing treatment for brain tumours. Our neuro-oncology team use the Gamma Knife Icon to deliver this treatment.

This is designed for stereotactic brain and spinal surgery, as well as stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) which is used for small tumours elsewhere in the body. It also provides Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, a highly versatile treatment for a wide range of cancer types.

The MRIdian MR linac is the first of its kind in London for non-research use. MRIdian allows clinicians to ‘see as they treat’ using live images of the tumour and surrounding tissue to continually adjust the radiation beam for movements and more precise treatment targeting. MRIdian is widely used for gastrointestinal, lung and prostate cancer as well as difficult-to-reach tumours which are partly hidden behind sensitive organs such as the heart.
