Specialist cancer care centre
You can be sure of the best care from our experienced Consultant Clinical Oncologists. They are committed to delivering outstanding nonsurgical treatment and management of cancer, including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy.
Your consultant can refer you to a surgeon if you’re having additional problems that they could deal with better. They can also refer you to our allied hospital – BMI Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow – for treatments like chemotherapy and immunotherapy and further investigations such as specialised imaging.
The hospital is easy to get to for patients in Ayrshire and beyond. We offer consultant-led care throughout your journey with us, as well as exceptional nursing and friendly administrative staff dedicated to providing personalised care in the fastest way possible.
Clinical oncology is a speciality that deals with all aspects of cancer care, excluding surgery. The clinical oncologists at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital consult and review treatment for colorectal, prostate and bladder cancer.
Typically, this field of oncology uses chemotherapy and radiotherapy to treat cancer, along with hormone treatments.
Doctors and scientists are developing new oncological treatments all the time. The most significant advance in the last few years is immunotherapy, which can effectively treat some cancers.
Our clinical oncologists offer the following treatments:
Consultations and reviews take place at BMI Carrick Glen Hospital, and treatment is administered at Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow or through the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.
During your consultation, you can expect a discussion about your general health and other issues you might have. Your clinical oncologist will then focus on your current symptoms, what your diagnostic tests have shown, and the stage of your cancer. Then they would explain your type of cancer in detail, the diagnosis and discuss the treatment options available to you.
We understand there will be a lot for you to take in. You will have time to ask questions or address your concerns, and we recommend you bring someone along with you to the consultation to support you.
Our Consultant Clinical Oncologists can also advise further investigations, such as a computerised tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. They will organise imaging on an urgent basis at Ross Hall Hospital in Glasgow.
It’s essential that you go home, think through the treatment plan thoroughly and discuss it with those close to you. Your consultant will arrange a follow-up consultation or call with you should you have any further questions or wish to go ahead with the proposed treatment.
If you agree with the treatment, your clinical oncologist will arrange for this to start urgently and provide you with further details.
Our Consultant Clinical Oncologists have decades of experience in cancer study and training registrars, publishing articles in medical journals, advising on potential new drugs, and principal investigators in national and international clinical trials.
We understand that the word ‘cancer’ can create feelings of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty about what lies ahead. Our expert Consultant Clinical Oncologists are compassionate and caring, with an excellent understanding of what you’re going through to put you at your ease. They will reassure you as much as possible and try to relieve your anxieties, so you leave the hospital with a positive mind and a clear way forward.
