Cancer Centre

Established in Dublin in 1986, the Cancer Centre has over 25 years of experience providing support and care from diagnosis, treatment and aftercare, to patients with cancer throughout Ireland. 

Over the years, the service has expanded and now includes a comprehensive Cancer Centre in Dublin, along with a Radiotherapy Centre in Limerick, located in the grounds of the Mid-Western Regional Hospital, Limerick.

Leading private cancer centre in Ireland

At the Cancer Centre, you will be cared for by a group of highly experienced consultants, each specialising in a particular area of cancer diagnosis and treatment. They are supported by an extended team of nursing and healthcare professionals all integrated within the one setting. 

We pride ourselves on ensuring all patients have access to the latest developments, technologies and specialist expertise. We are currently the only centre in the country offering High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy treatment to prostate cancer patients in Ireland.

The key focus of the Cancer Centre is personalised patient care. The patient is at the forefront of everything we do.  We aim to support each of our patients both physically and emotionally, throughout their treatment journey with us. As part of our services offered at the Cancer Centre, we provide a professional Psychotherapy service to patients and their families, as well as a Survivorship Programme, helping patients to return to their normal routine following cancer treatment.

  • For every cancer patient, the journey to diagnosis is unique. For many, it starts with referrral to hospital by your GP and for others it happens through regular screening. 

    No matter what your journey, we encourage you to be an active participant in your care. Your first appointment at the Cancer Centre can often be very stressful and cause a lot of anxiety. You should never be afraid to ask us questions or for help and advice. If it makes you feel more comfortable, bring a member of your family along to support you.

  • If you are diagnosed with a cancer, you will be referred to an Oncologist for evaluation and treatment recommendations.  Your Oncologist will vary depending on the type of treatment you are receiving:

    Medical Oncologist - A doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, and targeted therapy.

    Surgical Oncologist - Surgical oncology is a specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of a variety of tumors.

    Radiation Oncologist - Radiation oncology is a medical specialty that involves treating cancer with radiation. Doctors who specialize in treating cancer with radiation (Radiation Oncologists) use radiation therapy to treat a wide variety of cancers

     

  • We strive to make your care and treatment as comfortable as possible.
