At Spire Little Aston Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham we combine a full range of cancer technologies and treatments in a clean, comfortable and private hospital environment all under one roof. We are committed to delivering a high level of care to our patients, helping them get the treatment they need as quickly as possible.
We have recently gained the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark for our oncology services
Our highly skilled and experienced team of cancer surgeons, oncologists and specialist support staff work together to treat a wide range of cancers, together they are able to offer treatment for cancer that includes diagnosis, surgery and chemotherapy in a comfortable environment.
Some of the cancers that we routinely diagnose and treat:
- Gynaecological cancer (including ovarian and cervical cancer)
- Breast cancer
- Colo-rectal cancer (including bowel cancer)
- Haematological conditions including lymphoma, myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
- Urological cancer (including bladder, prostate and testicular for surgery only)
- Lung cancer
- Upper gastro-intestinal conditions (including stomach cancer)
A dedicated team of Oncology Nurse Specialists compliment our oncologists. They are trained in all aspects of chemotherapy, including administration, management of side effects, counselling and all issues relating to cancer.
We now offer scalp cooling treatment for patients receiving chemotherapy.
Scalp cooling is a method used for lowering the temperature of the scalp, restricting the amount of blood reaching the hair folicles thereby protecting them from the effects of the concentrated chemotherapy drugs carried in the blood stream.
