Where to get Brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer
The majority of NHS Trust hospitals
Where to get brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer on the NHS should not be a problem.
Just about all NHS Trusts throughout the country are now equiped to provide Brachytherapy therapy for prostate cancer patients either directly or via arrangements with other Trusts.
Either look on your local NHS website to confirm availability or check via their Oncology and Radiotherapy departments. PHONE THAT DEPARTMENT IF YOU ARE STILL UNSURE. You can always ask to be referred to an NHS Trust that does have a Brachytherapy (low and high dose) capability.
Most NHS Trusts provide a list of Oncology Consultants. You can google each of then to decide who you would prefer to be referred to.
Brachytherapy is available from the private wings some large NHS teaching hospitals and a few large private hospitals.
There are private cancer centres run by Genesis Care (formerly Cancer UK) in conjuction with regional private hospitals who provide private cancer treatment.
The website page Where to access private non surgical Prostate cancer treatments provides information on these centres and the Consultant Oncologists who practice at them. Note the GenesisCare network of private clinics does not currently offer brachytherapy. So where to get brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer privately is problematic outside London and Manchester.
