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 rate) capability.
Most NHS Trusts provide a list of Oncology/Urology Consultants. You can google each of then to decide who you would prefer to be referred to.
The largest UK centres offering brachytherapy are in Guildford, Leeds, Manchestoner, Mt Vernon and Guys Hospital, London
Brachytherapy is available from the private wings some large NHS teaching hospitals and a few large private hospitals. It tends to be offered in hospitals specialising in cancer and is funded by all the major Private Medical Insurers
