At BMI Albyn Hospital we offer a private cancer (oncology) service in Aberdeen, Angus and Moray, covering treatment of malignant disease in breast, lung, upper gastrointestinal tract.

The administration of chemotherapy and support therapies is delivered by our team of skilled, experienced private oncology nurses, a private consultant oncologist and other staff members.

If a patient requires radiotherapy they will be referred to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to continue their private treatment, remaining under the continued care of their oncology consultant.

Private Oncology Team in Aberdeen

Our multidisciplinary private cancer care team work closely together to provide wrap around patient care. The team includes:

  • Private Consultant Oncologist
  • Private Consultant Surgeons
  • Private Oncology Nurses
  • Private Specialist Nurses
  • Private Physiotherapists

The team will work with the patient to plan a treatment schedule and will discuss with them how long the treatments are likely to take. When being discharged from hospital our nursing team will liaise with consultant, GP and community based staff to ensure the discharge process is appropriate to individual patient needs.

We have a close relationship with local cancer support groups and charities in and around Aberdeen, Angus and Moray, and can make appropriate referrals to them for ongoing support.

To ensure each patient feels well-supported there is a 24-hour on-call service available from Healthcare at Home. In addition, all patients are welcome to attend the "Breast Friends" support group which meets monthly at our hospital.

Our Private Oncology Liaison Nurse is on site Monday to Friday and is available to answer any queries about this service. She can be contacted directly on 01224 595993 (ext. 473211).

Accessing private healthcare is easy, whether you choose to pay directly or use private medical insurance.

If you are paying for yourself, we can usually offer an upfront cost which you can then choose to pay in full or access one of our easy payment options.

If you have insurance, we can arrange direct settlement with your insurance provider, although you should check in advance to see if your treatment is covered. For more information, visit our private medical insurance page.
