At The Alexandra Hospital we have a long history of providing a compassionate and clinically excellent private oncology service for patients who live in Greater Manchester and Cheshire.
The Oncology team at The Alexandra Hospital provides expert support, care and treatment for people with cancer. While many of our patients are from Manchester, others travel from further afield for their private Oncology treatment.
Cancer affects everybody differently and we know just how hard a cancer diagnosis can be to you and your loved ones. When you choose to have your cancer treatment at The Alexandra Hospital, you will be looked after every step of the way, with treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Our highly-experienced multidisciplinary team is led by Oncology Consultants from The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and some of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK. Our dedicated Oncology unit offers easy access to on-site state-of-the-art technology, including MRI, CT scanning and Nuclear Medicine where required.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we have put in place extra precautions, such as using a dedicated, single entrance and exit point to further protect our more vulnerable patients.We continue to maintain the highest standards of COVID safety as per the NHS and Government guidance for healthcare settings.
We also offer cryotherapy (cold therapy) to specific patients, if required. Cryotherapy can reduce peripheral neuropathy (weakness, numbness or pain, normally in the legs or arms) and nail toxicities during chemotherapy.
For those patients receiving treatment that causes hair loss, Paxman Scalp Cooling technology, the leading product for prevention of hair loss from chemotherapy, can be given.
The Alexandra Hospital is proud to have been awarded 5 stars for the MacMillan Quality Environment Mark (MQEM).
The award sets the benchmark for the patient experience. It is designed, used and managed in a way that supports high quality care and in turn, contributes to the enhanced well-being of people affected by cancer.
Gaining 5 stars in this award is a prestigious achievement and one that the hospital is extremely proud to be awarded.
From the very beginning of your treatment, you will have access to a 24/7 on-call service managed by one of our Oncology Nurse Specialists. If you have any questions or concerns at any time, it is always very easy to contact us for advice and support.
The Oncology team includes a multidisciplinary team of specialists who work closely together to provide you with the highest level of care. They include:
Before any treatment starts, this highly experienced team will meet together to plan the best treatment for you and your specific needs. We know that during treatment, you may require access to a wider range of support. At The Alexandra Hospital, we can provide access to:
Our Pathology department can provide rapid results for blood tests ahead of any treatment. Access to genetic testing and advanced genomics is also available at your consultant’s request.

If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
