Cancer services

The QE Gateshead Cancer Services are delivered by tumour site multi professional teams.

They serve the city of Gateshead and the surrounding area in the South of Tyne & Wear PCT with a population catchment of 230,000.   We are part of the Clinical Networks and Senate NHS England.

All common cancers are treated here within the Cancer Unit, however some treatment pathways can span across hospitals which are known as Cancer Centres  such as RVI & Freeman Road Hospital

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead hosts the Northern Gynaecological Oncology Specialist Centre (NGOC) which treats all gynaecology cancers.

Children’s cancers are rare and these are not treated at this hospital. Referrals are usually made directly to Newcastle Hospitals Cancer Centre. We have consistently ranked in the top 5 performing trusts in the National Cancer patient survey.
