The Rutherford Cancer Centres are at the forefront of innovative cancer care. Providing ready access to state-of-the-art cancer treatments delivered by experienced consultants, specialists and staff, in exceptional care settings.
With a commitment to excellence throughout all we do, the network of centres provide an all-encompassing cancer service, delivering the highest quality imaging, diagnostics, planning, and treatments including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy and proton beam therapy.
Each of the Rutherford Cancer Centres has been carefully designed to meet the needs of our patients, and we pride ourselves on the standard of service and care we provide to everyone who enters one of the centres.
Each and every patient has a personalised care pathway, and our team of highly skilled staff provide support throughout treatment and offer easy access to a range of supportive care services, as required.
We work in collaboration with a range of partners, including insurers, technology companies, and health organisations, to provide patients with the best life outcomes possible coupled with personalised care and support.
The Rutherford Cancer Centres were the first in the UK to treat a patient with high-energy proton beam therapy, and the Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales has been approved by the Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC) to provide high energy proton beam therapy to adult patients referred from the NHS in Wales.
