Gastrointestinal cancers

What we do

Gastrointestinal cancers are those affecting the bowel, stomach, oesophagus, liver and pancreas. We offer diagnosis and surgical treatment of colorectal cancers and refer upper gastrointestinal cancers for surgical treatment via our partnership with The Royal Marsden Hospital.

Care is delivered by multidisciplinary teams who meet weekly to discuss and plan individualised patient care, to ensure you received the best treatment possible. Our clinical nurse specialists will offer support at all stages of your journey, particularly during investigation, diagnosis and treatment. They will provide you with advice either face to face in the clinic or over the telephone for both you and anyone caring for you.

We also maintain close links with local specialist cancer centres in case we need to refer you there for very specific types of treatment, such as radiotherapy.
