Cancer services

We offer a full range of Cancer treatments and investigations at a number of our sites across the Trust.

Most of your care will be provided at your local hospital, however, if you need radiotherapy, this is currently provided at one of two Cancer Centres: Sussex Cancer Centre in Brighton and Kent Oncology Centre in Maidstone. This is because radiotherapy is delivered on machines called Linear Accelerators, which are currently based at these centres.

If you need further information about the services we offer and points of contact, please contact your GP or your Keyworker (this is usually your Clinical Nurse Specialist and you will be advised of their contact details at your first meeting with them) if you are worried about any aspect of your health.
