Velindre Cancer Centre provides specialist cancer services to over 1.5 million people in Wales.
We are one of the largest cancer centres in the UK. Each year over 5,000 new referrals and around 50,000 new outpatient appointments are seen by us.
Patients referred to Velindre Cancer Centre come under the care of Clinical and Medical Oncologists. Oncologists specialise in the non-surgical treatment of cancer. Velindre Cancer Centre is the main centre for these services; however, we also provide outpatient clinics and other out-based chemotherapy services at other sites. Patient numbers have risen in recent years as advances in cancer treatment and diagnosis continue to be made. More people than ever are living with cancer and survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years through better treatments and earlier detection.
The Cancer Centre is host for the Clinical Oncology section of the University of Wales College of Medicine.
