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 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.
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.
