Cancer services

We provide a comprehensive service to diagnose, treat and support people with cancer, forming part of the UCLH Cancer Collaborative, enabling the trust to partner a number of key organisations across London as part of the 'Cancer Vanguard'.

Whilst under our care you will have a named consultant in charge of your care and a clinical nurse specialist will be your key worker throughout your pathway of care.
