Treatments

BHOC provides specialist non-surgical treatments for people with cancer, and for people who do not have cancer but require specialist radiotherapy or haematology services. The three main specialities are oncology, haematology, and palliative care.

We provide a range of specialist services, including treatments for radiotherapy, chemotherapy, brachytherapy, molecular radiotherapy, stem cell (bone marrow) transplantation, and palliative care.

You can also watch videos on  immunotherapy, radiotherapy for adults, and our award-winning animated film "One of a Kind", explaining radiotherapy for children.

 We are a specialist centre for patients with testicular cancer, sarcoma, haematological conditionshaemophiliasickle-cell and thalassaemia, and are the designated centre for teenage and young adult cancer services
