Pioneering cancer treatments

We combine the latest technology with world-leading experts to ensure you will receive the best treatment possible



Innovators in cancer care

As a specialist centre, we can offer you expertise and treatments not available anywhere else.

Our facilities include the latest radiotherapy machines, the highest specification imaging suites, state-of-the-art molecular pathology and the most sophisticated surgical theatres and equipment, including the most up-to-date robotic surgery systems.

Robotic surgery

We were the first hospital in England to introduce the da Vinci Xi and S surgical systems, revolutionising the way we treat our cancer patients. 


Our radiotherapy department is one of the largest in the UK – treating up to 5,000 patients and delivering 75,000 treatments each year. With the latest radiotherapy equipment we can deliver more focused, targeted and accurate treatments than ever before. 


Over the past four decades, we have been at the forefront of radiology, developing and trialling new ways of imaging cancer.

Our state-of-the-art imaging suites offer the latest in MRI, CT, PET-CT, X-ray, ultrasound and mammography operated by our highly skilled radiologists.

Faster access to new treatments 

We research, develop and trial the most advanced treatments across all tumour types and are the only UK centre to be a dedicated NIHR Biomedical Research Centre for cancer, running international clinical trials and the latest research studies. 

Our strong focus on research means you will have faster access to the latest drugs, treatments, clinical trials and techniques that are not available anywhere else in the world.

We recruit over 4,000 patients to 450 clinical trials each year
