Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our Chemotherapy Services (Pine Therapy Unit) have moved to Avery Hill Ward, at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup.  Details on visiting Queen Mary's Hospital can be found HERE (parking is free). 

If you are booking your own patient transport please ensure that you state Outpatients at Queen Mary’s Main Hospital, not Cancer Centre as this relates to the Guys Cancer Centre based at Queen Mary’s.

Queen Marys Hospital is not an acute hospital; this means they do not provide emergency care.  They also do not treat COVID patients, so there is less risk to you as a patient receiving your treatment.
