At the present time, the radiotherapy service will no longer allow visitors to accompany patients into the department. This is due to the number of patients within the Radiotherapy Service who have lowered immune systems (immunocompromised) as well as to minimise visitors to the hospital. Where additional visitors are essential (patients who require escorts or carers) then we kindly ask that this is limited to one per patient.

If you develop symptoms of Coronavirus (Covid-19) during your course of radiotherapy please contact the Radiotherapy Reception as soon as possible on 020 3447 3700, prior to attending the department. Our reception team will ask a few short questions and a member of our clinical teams will get back to you as soon as we are able.

Our radiotherapy department currently has around 2000 patients using the service each year from across the UK. We provide treatment for common cancers as well as delivering more specialist treatment.  

We are really proud to be expanding our service in 2021 to include proton beam therapy. This new centre will be part of the national NHS service, delivering proton beam therapy alongside The Christie in Manchester.
