About Us

World Cancer Day

Here is some of the feedback we have had from patients about our cancer services:

Our cancer services are run in partnership with the Royal Marsden Hospital, a world-leading provider of cancer care. Services are delivered at Kingston Hospital.

The Sir William Rous Unit, opened in 2008, is for people with cancer, or concerned they have cancer.

Outpatients are seen at both sites, with inpatient and day case surgery provided at Kingston Hospital. We also provide chemotherapy for blood cancers and solid tumours.

The Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is part of the RM Partners. RM Partners, the west London Cancer Alliance, is leading on the delivery of the recommendations in NHS England’s National Cancer Strategy to transform cancer services and improve outcomes and experience for its population.

We have links with other services provided at the Royal Marsden, and at St George’s Hospital.

Bowel & Colorectal


Breast Cancer Open Access Follow Up

Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP)



Head & Neck

Lower gastrointestinal (bowel)
