Practice Areas


Breast cancer is the most common cancer with almost 50,000 cases diagnosed in the UK each year. We are experts in the treatment of early and advanced breast cancer.


We are specialists in the management of gastrointestinal cancers which normally arise from the lining of the GI tract including the colon, oesophagus, stomach and small bowel.


These include tumours which arise within the lungs and the pleura, which is the outer lining of the lung, as well as other structures within the chest.

Unknown Site

Cancer of unknown primary (CUP) is diagnosed when a patient has been found to have a secondary cancer but it is not possible to find where it has come from (the primary tumour).
