CANCER TREATMENT

Cancer treatment requires a multidisciplinary approach involving a team of doctors (surgeons, chemotherapy and radiotherapy doctors), nurses and other health care professionals. We believe the optimal treatment needs to be tailored to the requirements of each individual since each cancer patient is unique. Our approach to the best treatment option is carefully assessed by our team of specialists.

The Harley Street Clinic Heart and Cancer Centre has dedicated facilities for outpatient chemotherapy and associated treatments. Our senior consultant medical oncologist offers a thorough consultation, including providing detailed explanation of management plan, treatment options, treatment complications and treatment outcomes.

Patients can receive chemotherapy, symptom management and blood tests in a calm and supportive environment. Our team of specialist cancer nurses works closely with the pharmacists, dieticians and other health care professionals to provide the highest standard of care to patients under the care of the medical oncologist.

We care for the whole person, and ensure each individual receives optimum support, including pre-treatment visits, follow-up telephone advice or review on the day unit.
