The variety of treatments on offer and the different needs of each patient mean that it is difficult to provide an estimate of cost until a treatment plan has been drawn up by the consultants. The services on offer from

different it is important to check with your insurer. Cancer Centre London will pre-authorise any radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment plans with the patient’s insurer, once an estimate can be given. We are also
able to quote for self-pay patients once the treatment plan has been agreed.
