Through a bespoke and personal approach, the team have created a comforting and relaxing environment for all patients at any stage of treatment. We also work very closely with the West of Scotland Beatson Cancer Centre to ensure our working practices and processes are aligned.

Cancer Care Nursing Team

Over time the team have worked extremely hard at building a patient community where they always feel welcome and can ask for support and guidance at any time through or after their treatment.

One of the most recent initiatives introduced is a monthly patient ‘drop-in’ meeting where patients get to discuss or can hear from different guest speaker on various topics associated to the management of treatments. 

Lung Cancer Services

Each treatment plan available has been shown to provide improved patient outcomes compared to current lung cancer standards and our highly experienced Consultant Oncologist, Dr Brian Clark who specialises in lung cancer will discuss and agree the most appropriate plan with each patient.
