All referrals are reviewed and managed by our specialist multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) in close contact with the referring clinicians and hospitals, to ensure that all patient needs are jointly addressed.
Our MDT includes thoracic surgeons, respiratory physicians, oncologists, histopathologists, radiologists, specialist nurses and palliative care specialists.
By working in close partnership with other specialist providers we are able to arrange a seamless and speedy transfer of patients to chemotherapy or radiotherapy when required. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are typically provided by our colleagues at Royal Marsden Hospital (for Royal Brompton Hospital patients) and Mount Vernon Cancer Centre (for Harefield Hospital patients) or, where possible and if preferred by a patient, at a trust near to the patient's home.
Treatment and all investigations are planned in consultation with patients and their family to help them to choose the best treatment option, to provide information and other support that an individual patient and their family members might require.
We provide services to both NHS and private patients.
We regularly ask our patients and referring trusts for their feedback on our services and constantly working to enhance and develop it further.
