Overview

Centre for radiotherapy and wellbeing

Offering fast access to cancer treatment in Elstree.

 

We work in partnership with local medical professionals to deliver better care through state-of-the-art radiotherapy treatments, and integrated wellbeing programmes.

Easy access to treatments and services

Accessing the treatments you need couldn’t be easier.

There’s no waiting list. Your treatment can usually start within 5 days of referral.

We’re recognised by all the major private medical insurers and we also offer a range of self-pay options. We can help with the paperwork too.

At Elstree we offer:

We’re always pushing the boundaries investing in the most advanced technology to develop better targeted radiotherapy treatments to provide:

      • o Faceless shells for patients with brain and head and neck cancers – this provides a less claustrophobic experience
    • o Quick daily treatment set-up reducing the time you spend in the centre each day

 

  • Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), daily imaging to accurately target the treatment site
  • Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH) – this technique reduces movement in the area treated. For patients with left sided breast cancer it reduces the risk of damage to the heart. It is also used for patients with cancers of the chest and abdomen.
  • Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR) delivers fewer but larger doses of radiotherapy to treat certain cancers. This can significantly reduce your treatment period.
  • Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) We offer VMAT to all patients. This includes patients needing palliative treatment who we normally treat within 2 days
  • Partial Breast Irradiation (PBI) is suitable for low-risk patients and has significantly fewer side effects offering better cosmetic outcomes without compromising long-term clinical outcomes.
  • SpaceOAR Hydrogel – this implant can improve the short and long-term side-effects of prostate radiotherapy treatment. And is available to all men who would benefit at no additional cost.
  • Holistic therapies and Living Well programme
    We believe that its important to not just treat your cancer but to treat you. We work with Penny Brohn UK, to provide complementary therapies as part of your treatment at no additional cost to you or your insurance company. These include counselling and holistic treatments such as, reflexology and relaxation as well as mindfulness meditation for our patients and their families.
