London Bridge Hospital’s Private Care at Guy’s cancer centre

Within London Bridge Hospital’s central campus is Private Care at Guy’s, our state-of-the-art cancer centre situated on the top four floors of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust cancer centre. Although our cancer centre is owned and operated by our team, it makes a strong connection between private healthcare and the NHS – one that leads to shared knowledge, and remarkable results. 

Our Private Care at Guy’s centre specialises in haemato-oncology (blood cancers), urology, gynaecology, breast, and conditions of the head, neck and thyroid. Here in our centre of excellence all cancer patients will have their systemic anti-cancer therapies such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy and new biological agents. With theatres, chemotherapy bays, oncology and surgical wards, and an intensive care unit with consultant intensivists resident 24 hours a day, we can offer complex medicine and a level support rarely found in private hospitals in the UK.


Diagnosis and treatment of cancer

Thorough investigation plays a vital role in treating cancer effectively. At London Bridge Hospital, we’re equipped to carry out the comprehensive range of highly specialised screening and diagnostic tests.


A new state-of-the-art PET-CT and nuclear medicine centre complement the latest technology across imaging modalities such as CT, Mammogram, MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray. Blood samples and biopsies are analysed on-site or at HCA UK laboratories. And for anyone concerned about the risk of inherited cancer, we also provide a genetic screening service.


Importantly consultant radiologists and pathologists with expertise in each area of cancer report on findings and ensure nothing is missed. 


Cancer facilities across our campus

Our Private Care at Guy’s theatres have a fully integrated da Vinci® Surgical System: a robot helping surgeons to perform the most complex, delicate procedures. This provides more precision when treating patients with prostate cancer, minimising the risks of side effects such as impotence and incontinence.



We have a dedicated private radiotherapy suite (located in Guy’s Hospital), an 18 bay treatment suite to deliver chemotherapy, immunotherapy and biologics, and Level 3 Intensive Care Units ensuring we can manage all levels of complexity and need when it comes to cancer. Patients with other cancer types such as oesophageal, renal, colorectal will have their surgery in the main London Bridge Hospital site. 

A few of our specialist cancer diagnostic clinics:


  • Rapid access and diagnosis breast centre at HCA UK The Shard  
  • Gynaecology clinic including hysteroscopy and colposcopy
  • Head & neck lump fine needle aspiration clinic led by consultant radiologists
  • Endobronchial and endoscopic ultrasound clinics
  • Cancer genetic testing clinic for BRCA1/2 and rarer cancer conditions
  • A rapid access urology clinic

A multidisciplinary team approach to each cancer type

Once diagnosed, cancer patients will be reviewed by the full team of cancer specialists in our multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings for each cancer type. At these regular meetings consultant clinical leads, many from leading NHS teaching hospitals come together with other healthcare professionals involved in a patient’s care to debate, plan and agree all aspects of treatment – so it will be based on shared insight of the best medical minds in the country. 

Hereditary cancer genetic testing at London Bridge Hospital

Our consultant geneticists lead multidisciplinary specialist clinics for BRCA1/2 gene mutation carriers and other rarer hereditary cancer conditions.They have extensive clinical and academic experience in Cancer Genetics and are able to support and advise patients and their families regarding further treatment or surgical options.

Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialists

Great cancer care means even more than our world-renowned consultants and state-of-the-art technology. It also means kindness and compassion. Clinical Nurse Specialists are nurses who, like consultants, specialise in their fields of medicine; from breast to colorectal and haematology. All major cancer specialities have CNSs who support patients and their families throughout their journey, from the moment they step in the door to the end of their treatment and throughout recovery. These specialists provide detailed information on their patients’ conditions and navigate their way through the healthcare ‘system’.

Other members of our cancer team:

  • a haematology clinical nurse specialist who works closely with consultants to support haematological treatments including autologous stem cell transplants
  • a consultant cardio-oncologist to monitor patients going through cancer treatments
  • a clinical psychologist, important in the comprehensive treatment of cancer
  • specialist oncology resident medical officers (RMOs) 24 hours a day
  • physiotherapists and occupational therapists
  • dieticians to provide specialist nutritional advice and support to patients undergoing cancer treatments
  • a therapist offering reflexology and massage
