We offer a range of services for patients with suspected colorectal cancer, including;

  • Scans – we provide MRI scans, CT scans and PET scans. These are important as they provide information about abnormalities inside the body that are not otherwise seen.
  • Tumour markers
  • Day case endoscopy
  • CT Colonography – a procedure to view the inner lining of the bowel
  • Inpatient surgery
  • Stoma care service for patients who have a colostomy

All patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer are discussed at a multi-disciplinary team meeting. This is where a group of doctors and other health professionals involved in your care and treatment discuss and decide together the best treatment options for you.

A team of specialist staff provides support to patients diagnosed with all colorectal cancers before, during and after treatment.
