Our joint brain cancer (neuro oncology) service with King's College Hospital is one of the largest in Europe.
We treat tumours of the brain and spine. We see patients from all over the United Kingdom and from around the world. We are a Tessa Jowell Centre of Excellence.
Our clinics bring together different specialists in state-of-the-art facilities. This allows us to give our patients the best care and treatment.
We work together with your GP and community services to make sure we meet your needs.
We can refer you for:
- fertility support at our assisted conception unit

Research and clinical trials
Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
We are involved in research, clinical trials and the development of new therapies.
We may ask if you want to take part in one of our clinical trials or research projects. If you do not wish to, this will not affect your treatment.
