Redevelopment of Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup

Work started on the new state-of-the-art Guy’s and St Thomas’ Cancer Centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup in November 2014. When it is completed in 2016, the Queen Mary’s Cancer Centre will provide 16,000 radiotherapy and 4,600 chemotherapy treatments a year. Most patients will no longer have to travel into central London for radiotherapy and chemotherapy because Guy’s and St Thomas’ staff will provide these treatments in Sidcup.

The Cancer Centre will include two new linear accelerator machines for radiotherapy treatment, as well as chemotherapy treatment facilities, together with an information and support service for cancer patients and their families provided by Dimbleby Cancer Care and Macmillan Cancer Support.


The redevelopment programme for Queen Mary’s Hospital, which is owned by Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, is set to deliver a range of state-of-the-art facilities for local people. It will also include a new Guy’s and St Thomas’ Kidney Treatment Centre.
