Cancer, adults

What we do

We are a large, local provider of diagnostic services and surgical treatments for common cancers. For information about cancer, and the services and support we provide, visit our Cancer care section.

King’s is nationally recognised as a specialist centre for haemato-oncology, neuro-oncology and hepato-billary cancer, treating patients from both the local population and across the country.

We work in partnership with Guys and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust. This means that cancer patients may attend their hospitals for investigations or receive some of their cancer care from them. For South East London, the majority of complex surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy is delivered at Guy’s Cancer Centre.

Please check your appointment letter to find out which service you need to see.
