The very latest treatments and care

At The London Clinic, we’re proud to be a pioneering cancer treatment centre. 

Since our foundation in 1932, we’ve often been the first hospital in the UK to offer our patients new advances in cancer treatment and care.

Some of our innovations in cancer care:

  • We’re the first hospital in the UK to offer people with prostate cancer a new treatment called SpaceOAR, which causes fewer side effects
  • We’re the only hospital in London offering adaptive radiotherapy to people with bladder cancer
  • We were the first hospital in the UK to scan people with a 3T MRI scanner, which produces superior images to conventional MRI scanners
  • We’re one of the few hospitals providing CAR-T cell therapy, a revolutionary treatment giving hope to people with a type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma called large B-cell lymphoma who previously had run out of treatment options
  • We’re proud to have been one of the first private hospitals in the UK to offer Lutetium-177 PSMA therapy, an innovative treatment for advanced prostate cancer that can directly target cancer cells.

What we offer

Diagnostic tests and scans

We offer a wide range of inpatient and outpatient tests and scans to diagnose cancer early and make sure you receive the best possible treatment.

Our imaging department has over 60 full-time members of staff.

All of them are dedicated to making you comfortable and relaxed throughout any test or scan you have with us.

Robotic surgery

Our cancer care team includes a number of world-leading experts in robotic surgery.

They use state-of-the-art technology, such as the da Vinci robot system and CyberKnife, to precisely treat a range of cancers.

As a result, healthy tissue within the body is less likely to be affected, leading to fewer side effects and quicker recovery times.

Radiotherapy service

As well as offering conventional radiotherapy such as external beam radiotherapy, we pioneer the use of new and innovative radiotherapy techniques.

These cutting-edge procedures include intraoperative radiotherapy, adaptive radiotherapy for bladder cancer, and selective internal radiotherapy for liver cancer.

Chemotherapy service

We offer all the latest chemotherapy drugs to actively treat and manage a wide range of cancers.
