About Guy's Cancer



Guy's Cancer is one of the UK’s leading providers of care and treatment for people with cancer.

World-leading clinical care

Cancer specialist physiotherapist Faye Dickinson and patient Bill Curtis We are home to some of the best cancer specialists in the country, the very latest state-of-the-art facilities and pioneering treatments, thanks to our extensive research programmes.

We are also part of something much bigger. Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is an internationally renowned healthcare organisation with expertise across the full range of medical care. If you need surgery, diabetes treatment or psychological support, we have specialists right here, on site, who can work as part of your cancer team.

For you, that means joined-up care, all in one place, for an all-round better experience of healthcare.

The best place for care

The new, state-of-the-art Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital brings most of our services under one roof, helping us to give our patients seamless care. The centre offers a welcoming, uplifting environment, designed with patients at its heart.

Innovations include locating the radiotherapy suites above ground level, so that the waiting area can be flooded with natural light, and different sized chemotherapy treatment areas to allow patients to choose from a large communal space or a more intimate and private space.

If you have any complications during your treatment, you can side-step A&E and be fast-tracked through our acute oncology assessment unit.

And if you need to stay overnight, you will come to one of our special cancer wards, run by specialist staff, with patients going through a similar experience to you.

Care that's made for you

At Guy's Cancer, we understand that cancer can affect you and your loved ones in many ways. 

Our experts will assess your medical needs and provide a package of care that works for you. We will also explore how cancer may affect your emotional, social and family life too.

We also offer you and your carer high quality complementary treatments such as massage and counselling through our partner charity Dimbleby Cancer Care.

Through the innovative new Gordon Survivorship Centre, we can understand your individual needs after your treatment has finished and support you to live as healthily as possible.

For patients who need support as they approach the end of life, our specialist palliative care team can help to make every day count.
