Cancer services at UCLH

UCLH provides a comprehensive service to diagnose, treat and support people with cancer. We are a specialist centre for many types of cancer and treat patients from both our local area and across the country.

Our close links with UCL gives patients the opportunity to participate in numerous clinical research trials and gives access to new treatments as soon as they become available.

Our expert teams provide cancer care from state-of-the-art facilities, including the award winning University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre. We are continually looking to improve how we provide care in different and innovative ways for example treating patients on an ambulatory care basis rather than in an inpatient hospital setting.

UCLH is at the forefront of developing cancer care. We are bringing the world’s most advanced form of radiotherapy, proton beam therapy, to the UK. We are also part of the National Cancer Vanguard which aims to develop new, improved models of cancer care that can be replicated elsewhere.
