Matt is a Medicine Specialist with a particular interest and extensive experience in Oncology. Matt practices all aspects of medical oncology and is active in oncology clinical research with a number of existing publications as well as ongoing research.
Tim is the Head of Surgery at Eastcott Referrals and as a Soft Tissue surgeon dedicates much of his time to managing Oncology cases. Tim is particularly adept at finding ways to achieve margins for challenging tumours, after all a chance to cut is a chance to cure.
Andy is our head of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery service and is one of the few specialists in the country receiving further training specifically in this discipline. We are lucky to have Andy to allow a surgical approach to oral tumours, particularly as alternative approaches to these tumours are frequently much less effective.
Supporting the clinicians we have an amazing Nursing team. Our skilled and empathetic nurses build personal relationships with our patients during their treatment. The Nursing team are heavily involved in many of the Oncological cases and can relieve the anxiety and discomfort in our patients as they go through their treatment.
