Our goal

Our goal is to deliver high-quality, expert, cancer care at all points of the patient’s cancer journey, from cancer screening and diagnostics to personalised cancer treatment and survivorship.

Our experienced clinicians come from various backgrounds, having trained in some of the world’s most highly regarded hospitals.

We are based in central London with access to state-of-the-art facilities to deliver first-class patient care.

Our Story

In the UK up to 50% of patients presenting to their GP may present with vague symptoms that warrant a rapid diagnostic pathway. In similar clinics in the NHS over 50% of patients will have a diagnosis that requires further follow up.  

After years working in the field our consultants have witnessed how slow and frustrating it can be to have a symptom seen. Waiting times can be long with many people being wrongly referred multiple times before results are obtained. The problem with this is simple, advanced stage cancer is often much more complex to treat and carries a significant amount of morbidity. If one-third of advanced-stage cancers were instead diagnosed at an earlier stage, there would be up to 24% fewer cancer-related deaths. We want our patients at the centre. 

We are working to bring a coordinated, first of its kind, private, bespoke rapid diagnostic service that is reviewed by a team of specialist doctors to our patients. We want to bring early diagnostics and peace of mind to the fore in patient centred care.
