Welcome to cancer services at Addenbrooke's

We are one of the leading cancer care specialist services in the UK, seeing more than 4,000 new  adult patients a year. Our reputation is built on:

  • quality patient care

Our collaborative outlook with the University of Cambridge, Cancer Research UK and Macmillan enables us to bring together high quality clinical care and treatment underpinned by the world-class research.  As well as being the local hospital for patients living in the Cambridge area, we function as a regional centre for rarer types of cancer. As such, we collaborate across the region as part of the Anglia Cancer Network.
