Taking care of you

With every step on the journey, we ensure our patients receive the best possible care 

Care that sets a benchmark 

The Royal Marsden is recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in providing high standards of care for all our patients.

As a world-leading NHS Trust, our private services are subject to the same exceptional standards of rigour and clinical excellence as our NHS services with the added benefits of improved comfort, increased privacy and streamlined access.

Our cancer services were rated as ‘outstanding’ by the CQC

Nurse-led care 

Our expert nurses are here to ensure you receive the best possible care and support throughout your journey. As a world-leader in nursing care, we continually look for new and innovative ways to work - many of which have now become standard practice across the UK.   

Our Royal Marsden School educates over 700 nurses and allied health professional every year. By training, developing and supporting our nursing teams, we make sure you will always receive the best level of care from confident, highly educated cancer nurses. 

The level of care and personal touch from each member of staff has been beyond anything I have experienced in any other hospital

Providing support round the clock 

As a private patient you will have your own Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) who will provide 24/7 support to help you cope with the physical, psychological and practical realities of cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Our round the clock nursing means we can deliver better and more effective care to you when you need it most.

At my lowest points, my CNS was there to help and support me. Every member of the team made me feel like I was part of their family, like I really mattered
