The Royal Marsden has a hairdressing service for its inpatients, which offers a wash and blow-dry.

You can also discuss with the hairdresser how to manage your hair if you are likely to lose it as a result of your treatment. Find out more


We offer a wide selection of wigs. If you are likely to lose your hair and would like a wig, the appliance officer can supply and fit one for you. Please note that there is a prescription charge for wigs.

If you can't find a wig to suit you through the hospital appliance officer you could buy a wig or alternative head covering privately. Our staff will be happy to provide a list of wig suppliers. Find out more.
