Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides comprehensive services for patients with common cancers. Patients with cancer are usually referred to a multidisciplinary team (MDT) for diagnosis and treatment. The aim of the team is to provide the highest quality, individualised care to all patients.
Specialists at Bradford Teaching Hospitals treat cancers such as breast, lung, colorectal (bowel), upper gastrointestinal (digestive system), gynaecology (female reproductive organs), urology, and cancer of the unknown primary. Patients with rarer cancers are often seen at St James’s University Hospital, Leeds.
Treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team which includes doctors, nurses, dietitians and psychologists. Radiotherapy treatments are provided by visiting doctors from St James’s University Hospital in Leeds.
Advice, support, and information is provided to families, carers and other healthcare professionals.
