As a centre of excellence, we pride ourselves in both our technical treatments and our patient care. Our staff are a highly trained group of people in non-surgical oncology.
The consultant team are highly respected and each specialises in one or two particular cancers. There is also a team of doctors who support the consultants’ clinical work, both in the outpatient clinics and on the wards. Nurses deliver chemotherapy treatments and radiographers deliver radiotherapy treatments, all supported by teams of physicists, administration staff and engineers.
We treat patients from a large catchment population of almost 2 million people and some patients are referred to us from across the country into areas where we have specialist knowledge and expertise. Over 5,000 new patients are registered with us each year.
Mount Vernon Cancer Centre prides itself on being at the forefront with the latest technology available for treatment and many patients being offered clinical trials for both chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. The centre has the latest pumps for the delivery of chemotherapy and in radiotherapy the most up to date linear accelerators can deliver the latest treatment techniques.
Our team of volunteers are available to help patients find their way around our rather complex site. If you need help, just look out for the people wearing a yellow sash or a yellow lanyard and a yellow badge.
