Ensuring a patient receives the best possible treatment up-front reduces the chances of a cancer returning and may avoid further treatment. These are important to consider when assessing the potential cost of care. Advances in cancer treatment and outcomes can be mostly attributed to four key factors;
- Early diagnosis
- More effective treatments
- Multi-disciplinary medical teams of skilled people following well defined clinical protocols
- Access to experienced cancer doctors using the latest diagnostic and treatment facilities
HCA's cancer services have been designed to deliver on each of these four areas to the highest levels. This includes one-stop clinics, a huge investment in state-of-the-art CT, MRI scanners and other diagnostic technologies and revolutionary new treatments such as the CyberKnife. We believe HCA offers the most state-of-the art technology platform in Europe, so it is not surprising that customers travel from all over the UK, and the rest of the world, to be treated in one of our hospitals.
