The Royal Marsden accepts referrals from both GPs and other hospitals for the diagnosis and treatment of common and rare cancers. We also accept referrals on a case-by-case basis for second opinions where either diagnosis or treatment is difficult or when patients feel that a second opinion would be helpful.
Patients are seen at either our Sutton or Chelsea sites, or at our Medical Daycare Unit at The Kingston Hospital.
* Where primary assessment and diagnosis is not provided by The Royal Marsden, clinicians support diagnosis and review through multidisciplinary team working with other providers.

Some of our services are Clinical Assessment Services, where a clinic appointment is not booked directly. Instead the patient is asked to telephone us after we have reviewed the referral and established the most appropriate clinic. However please be assured that all referrals are dealt with quickly and a timely appointment made.
Please note that referrals for second opinions where either diagnosis or treatment is difficult or when patients feel that a second opinion would be helpful are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
