Coronavirus (COVID-19): visiting The Royal Marsden suspended

Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest: Visiting The Royal Marsden is still suspended, but we want to reassure our patients, their families and anyone worried about cancer during this difficult time that we are still delivering treatment - the hospital is open. Please see more information here about how we are keeping everyone safe.


The Royal Marsden offers a specialist research-led service for the staging, treatment and care of gynaecological cancer at its hospitals in Chelsea, London, and Sutton, Surrey.

Gynaecological cancers include cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, vagina cancer, vulva cancer and womb (uterus) cancer. Available gynaecological cancer services at The Royal Marsden include:

  • Diagnosis, tests and investigations: specialist review and second opinion; staging and investigation
  • Cancer genetics 
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiotherapy, including brachytherapy
  • Minimally invasive and open surgery
  • Critical care 
  • Rehabilitation 
  • Palliative and supportive care 
  • Clinical trials 


The Royal Marsden is a specialist treatment centre for gynaecological cancers. Most of our referrals come from the network of NHS trusts with which we work. We do not accept general referrals from GPs.

Clinical trials

The Royal Marsden’s Gynaecology Unit is involved in research across a range of gynaecological cancers. Management of these cancers requires a multidisciplinary team approach, and the Gynaecology Unit's clinical research programme is organised in such a way as to reflect this.
