New Sidcup Cancer Centre Receives First Patients

James Brokenshire warmly welcomes the opening of the of the art new cancer centre saying it will help transform NHS care in Bexley and beyond as part of £30m investment plan at Queen Mary's Hospital Sidcup.

The modern new facility will significantly enhance the NHS services provided from Sidcup, with patients receiving quality care locally rather than having to travel up to a central London hospital.

People will be able to receive radiotherapy treatment in outer south east London for the very first time.  Chemotherapy treatment will also be provided in bright, new, comfortable surroundings with a support centre offering information and advice to both patients and their families.

Conservative Candidate for Old Bexley and Sidcup James Brokenshire has campaigned over many years in support of the opening of the new cancer centre and to secure the long term future of Queen Mary’s.

Commenting,  James said:

"I'm absolutely delighted that this incredible new facility will help relaunch our local hospital and provide secure foundations for the years to come. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the doctors, nurses, staff and all those who have campaigned for our local hospital, Queen Mary’s can look to the future with confidence."
