Oncology is the medical speciality that is tasked with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, an obviously very devastating condition that comes in many forms and which affects many areas throughout the body.

Fortunately, research and development of cancer and how to treat it is constantly improving. Diagnostics and treatments are advancing quickly, with more patients benefiting from better technology to detect cancer earlier and treat it more effectively. Whilst many cancers are now highly treatable, getting the right treatment still requires highly trained specialists and a dedicated team to deliver it. 

Several different cancers are found around the body, and each requires its own specialists. Consultants from a variety of specialities work alongside oncologists to diagnose and treat cancer quickly and effectively. They are supported by dedicated teams from across the hospital to deliver a complete oncology service for a range of cancers.

The types of cancer treated at Ross Hall Hospital include:

  • Bladder
  • Bowel
  • Breast
  • Colon
  • Gynaecological
  • Lung
  • Oesophageal
  • Pancreatic
  • Prostate (read more about our dedicate prostate cancer centre)

We're proud to offer fast and accurate assessment and diagnosis of cancer and are able to provide fast access to a range of private on-site diagnostics, including blood testing, ultrasound, mammography, biopsy, CT, MRI and endoscopy.

If you are diagnosed with cancer, a bespoke treatment plan will be tailored to you by your consultant and an oncologist. Treatment will be conducted by the best assortment of oncology specialists from the experienced multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.

Treatments offered at Ross Hall Hospital include:

  • Surgery to remove the cancer
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy

Some treatments for cancer are not available on-site at Ross Hall Hospital. To ensure you get a complete package of care, your oncologist will be able to arrange further treatment such as Radiotherapy at the local Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.

A cancer diagnosis is always incredibly difficult news to receive. If you're being diagnosed with cancer at Ross Hall Hospital, your consultant and our specialist cancer nurses will be clear, empathetic and supportive. They will ensure you receive all of the information, guidance and support you need at this difficult time.

After a confirmed cancer diagnosis, patients will be referred to a consultant oncologist to discuss the diagnosis and prognosis and to determine the best course of action going forward. Usually, this appointment is available immediately or very quickly after the point of diagnosis to avoid anxious waiting and to ensure treatment gets started as soon as possible.

Under the care of your consultant and the oncologist, you'll also be supported by a specialist team, including a dedicated cancer nursing team. Your consultant and oncologist will create a tailored treatment plan for you, and we'll make sure you fully understand what's happening. We will answer any and all questions you may have, and we'll arrange the next stages of your treatment. 

During treatments such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormone therapy, you'll be cared for in a comfortable, light and airy private room with family members and friends always welcome. Lunch and refreshments for both patients and visitors are available, with a selection of meals for you to choose from. The unit also offers a complementary therapist offering reflexology, massage and guided relaxation.

The Oncology Unit has 11 private en-suite rooms, and prior to each pulse of treatment, patients undergo a full clinical assessment, including their performance status and a review of any observations and treatment toxicity. This provides them with a complete individual and personal care programme tailored to their exact needs.

Every patient has 24-hour support from highly experienced oncology staff and is assessed and triaged in accordance with the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) triage system.

For the treatment of the various types of cancer, Ross Hall Hospital's dedicated oncology unit provides the most comprehensive private cancer care, with a leading multidisciplinary team in a comfortable environment.

Patients benefit from consultant lead treatment supported by an excellent team of cancer nurse specialists providing 1-1 care; each nurse will treat one patient at a time. Treatment can also be tailored and adapted to each individual patient. The day and time of treatment are entirely flexible to ensure your comfort.
