The Cancer Centre offers end-to-end cancer treatment services and support including radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy and biological targeted therapy, delivered by a highly experienced and skilled multi-disciplinary team of medical specialist consultants, nurses, counsellors and other paramedical professionals.

The hospital is also equipped with the latest Elekta Synergy Radiotherapy with C-RAD system which offers 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DRT), Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Volumetric Arc Therapy (VMAT) or Rapid Arc.
