Caring for you 

With our network of hospitals and key NHS partnerships in London and Manchester, we have the facilities and expertise to diagnose, treat and support the recovery of patients with all forms and stages of cancer.

In expert hands

Our expert cancer teams bring together world-leading surgeons, haematologists, oncologists and specialist nurses to deliver the highest standard care to patients of all ages.


Blood cancers

We care for patients with cancers affecting the bone marrow, the lymphatic system and the blood. The most common type of blood cancer is leukaemia.

Breast cancer

Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to divide and grow in an abnormal way. About 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK. It affects the large bowel, which is made up of the colon and rectum.

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer starts in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Over 41,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year.

A personalised approach

We understand that everyone — and every cancer — is different. Our next-generation sequencing is a type of genetic analysis. This helps us to find the most effective cancer treatment for each individual patient, faster. We’ll take a holistic approach to your care, not only addressing the physical symptoms but also focusing on your mental and emotional wellbeing — helping you and your loved ones to feel supported every step of the way.

Tailored care — without delay

We don't have waiting lists and same-day appointments are often available. Your dedicated consultant will work with you to create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your unique needs.

Multidisciplinary teams

From initial diagnosis through to treatment, rehabilitation and aftercare, you’ll benefit from close collaboration across all relevant areas of medical expertise. Each member of the team contributes different knowledge and skills to deliver comprehensive care and support your recovery. This helps us to ensure that our patients get the best possible care for them and are looked after according to the latest research and clinical best practice.

Cancer care - teams

I think this is absolutely central to good quality medical care.
Dr Tom Newsom-Davis

Consultant Medical Oncologist

The team responsible for your care may include consultant surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, physiotherapists, dietitians, specialist nurses and pharmacists. This is referred to as a multidisciplinary team (MDT).  

Faster diagnosis

With a focus on early detection, we provide access to state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and techniques, including our digital PET-CT scanner, advanced pathology, molecular imaging and interventional radiology facilities. We also offer a range of health screenings. 

Advanced treatment technology

We are often among the first private hospitals in the country to offer the latest proven therapies and surgical techniques. Our innovative cancer treatment technology includes:

In 2017, we opened the UK’s first integrated robotics theatre, designed to deliver precise, robotic-assisted surgery for our patients with cancer.

We are committed to providing patients with the very best in cancer care, whether that’s cutting-edge surgery, access to clinical trials, or delivering the most advanced treatment plans and innovative drugs.

When it comes to children’s cancer treatment, the Harley Street Clinic Children’s Hospital offers the highest quality of care in a supportive, family friendly environment. We provide comprehensive treatment for children of all ages, including targeted radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as the most delicate surgical techniques.
