What we offer

Detection and diagnosis

We provide the latest diagnostic modalities and appointments from 24 hours. Our rapid access services diagnose any condition which is causing your symptoms and will ensure you have the treatment you need as quickly as possible.

Advanced radiotherapy

We invest in the latest technologies so we can offer many of the most up-to-date types of radiotherapy for all adult cancer types. Your treatment will be personalised to you, and we use special techniques that can reduce side effects.

Chemotherapy and systemic anti-cancer therapy

We provide a full range of treatments in comfortable, private suites, including chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. With one-to-one nursing, our chemotherapy nurses are all highly skilled with additional training to provide high-quality cancer care where your health and wellbeing is our priority.

Exercise medicine

Exercise is proven to improve your body’s tolerance to cancer treatment and reduce side effects, as well as lower the chance of the cancer coming back. Our specially trained physiotherapists will develop a programme of physical activity that’s tailored to your needs and abilities.

Penny Brohn UK wellbeing

We have partnered with the charity Penny Brohn UK to provide a unique and evidence-informed approach to supporting your emotional and physical wellbeing during your cancer treatment and beyond. Our on-site Penny Brohn wellbeing consultant is available to you throughout your time as one of our patients.

Clinical trials

We believe every patient with cancer deserves the option of a clinical trial with access to novel, cutting-edge treatments offered by leading clinical experts. As a clinical research centre, we offer access to certain trials, so that together, we can improve future health outcomes for people with cancer today and for generations to come.
