Dr Anne Suovuori
I am a consultant clinical oncologist specialising in the delivery of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other cancer drug treatments. My philosophy is to treat individuals by adopting a holistic approach and addressing their mental and physical wellbeing – strongly encouraging them to make lifestyle changes which will benefit their long-term health.
I trained and qualified as a consultant clinical oncologist at Turku University Hospital in Finland, following which I worked as a locum consultant in the same hospital and in the local hospice.
After two years' work experience in a Finnish pharmaceutical company (Orion-Farmos) I moved to the UK to take up the post of a Research Fellow in the Breast Unit and the Thyroid Unit. I worked as a locum consultant oncologist at the Royal Free Hospital in London, before being appointed to my current NHS post in 2003. I have been the Royal College of Radiologists' tutor for clinical oncology trainees at the Wessex Deanery since 2013. Privately, I have treated radiotherapy patients at GenesisCare (formerly, Cancer Partners UK) since 2009.
I regularly attend international conferences and national meetings to keep abreast of the latest developments in cancer care. I am involved in various research projects in breast cancer and am also a member of many cancer networks.
I treat the following conditions: Breast cancer (radiotherapy for both breast and secondaries, chemotherapy, endocrine and infusional treatments). Melanoma (radiotherapy). Soft tissue sarcoma (chemotherapy, radiotherapy). Lifestyle and dietary advice in cancer care.
Spire Portsmouth Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
