Proton Beam Therapy

Proton beam therapy is an advanced form of external radiotherapy that uses high-energy proton beams instead of photon x-ray beams or electrons.

Proton beam therapy is highly targeted and works well for harder-to-reach tumours.

Mr-linac radiotherapy

MR-linac radiotherapy provides the ability to reshape the radiotherapy treatment dose based on daily changes of a tumour.

This treatment enables an accurate treatment dose delivery with real-time visualisation of the tumour.


Radiotherapy utilises radiation in the form of high-energy x-rays, known as photons, to damage the cancerous cells and prevent their growth and reproduction.

External beam radiotherapy (conventional radiotherapy) can be used to control cancer and alleviate symptoms.


Chemotherapy is the use of cytotoxic (anti-cancer) drugs to destroy cancer cells in the body.

It can help eradicate certain cancer cells from the body and is often combined with other treatments.


A biological therapy and type of targeted treatment that boosts the patient’s natural defence, the immune system.

Immunotherapy is used to find and destroy cancer cells found in the body.

Supportive Care

The care and support we offer our patients is second to none, and we provide that support from the point of diagnosis.

We offer each patient a personalised total care package that goes beyond best practice pathways.
