Why choose us?

Our WELLNET unit is led by a multi-disciplinary team with world-beating expertise in diagnosing and treating Neuroendocrine tumours (NET).


The unit was opened in 2013 in response to a growing number of NET cases presenting at The Wellington Hospital. Since then, it has gained an international reputation of excellence in this specialist area.


Each patient diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour receives the highest level of support. Treatment is led by specialist doctors who work with a team of specialist NET and Oncology doctors and nurses.


Patients have immediate access to the pioneering medical care and technology needed for their treatment. We offer specialist diagnostics, such as nuclear medicine tests, which highlight tumour location and help your consultant plan the best treatment plan.


WELLNET is led by Professor Martyn Caplin, who has vast experience in neuroendocrine tumours and an international reputation for the management of neuroendocrine tumour patients.
