The Cancer Centre

Cancer Centre collage

The Cancer Centre at Royal Preston Hospital provides care and treatment for cancer patients from Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Our aim is to work in partnership to offer the best care and maximum support to cancer patients and their families, and to lead research programmes and develop new treatments that will improve outcomes for people with cancer.

The Cancer Centre is a modern, welcoming environment that provides specialist surgery, radiotherapy, drug therapies including chemotherapy, palliative care and a range of other support.

Around 200 patients visit the Cancer Centre every day, and we have clinics across the region to bring care closer to patients' homes.

We also care for inpatients in our specialist cancer ward, Ribblesdale.

The Cancer Centre provides complimentary drinks and snacks for patients who are having radiotherapy or chemotherapy treatment, and cafe facilities for family and friends.
