What we do

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides comprehensive services for patients with common cancers.

Patients with cancer are usually referred to an MDT (Multidisciplinary Team) for diagnosis and treatment planning. The aim of the team is to provide the highest quality, individualised care to all patients with these diseases.

The Oncology Team treats cancers such as breast, lung, colorectal (bowel), upper gastrointestinal (digestive system), gynaecology (female reproductive organs) urology, and cancer of unknown primary. Patients with rarer cancers are often seen at St James’ Hospital, Leeds.

Treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team comprising doctors, nurses, dietitians, and psychologists. Radiotherapy treatments are provided by visiting doctors from St James Hospital in Leeds

Advice, support, and information is provided to other healthcare professionals, and to families and carers.
