Centre for diagnostics, oncology and wellbeing

Get better care. Faster.

 

It’s easy to get fast access to cancer care and treatment in Newmarket. There’s no waiting list. Your treatment can usually start within 5 days from referral. We also offer same day diagnostics appointments.

Working in partnership with medical professionals who also work across the local Trusts, we provide diagnostics, state-of-the- art radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments as well as integrated wellbeing programmes.

Easy access to treatments and services

 
Accessing the treatments you need couldn’t be easier – 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 Newmarket we offer:

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

    • Surface Guided Radiotherapy (SGRT) enabling:
      • o Tattoo free treatments
        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.
  • Chemotherapy
  • We provide a full complement of chemotherapy regimes for oncology and haematology.

    Treatment is provided in a dedicated personal room with television, internet access, drinks facilities and lunch if required. And there’s a comfortable lounge for your friends and relatives.

    Our nursing specialists offer a 24-hour, 7 days a week telephone advice line for patients and their relatives to assess issues and offer appropriate advice, liaising with your consultant as necessary.

  • Holistic therapies and Living Well programme
  • Working in partnership with Penny Brohn UK, we provide complementary therapies as part of your treatment. These include holistic treatments such as reflexology and relaxation as well as mindfulness meditation for our patients and their families.

    Our counselling service is confidential. It can help you feel more in control by making sense of your feelings and managing anxieties about your cancer and its treatment.
