A new £7 million state-of-the-art cancer treatment centre has opened in Newmarket.

The GenesisCare centre at The Oaks, just off Fordham Road, will give patients access to world-renowned private cancer care and is expected to create more than 30 new jobs including doctors, nurses, clinical scientists, pharmacists, radiation therapists and counsellors as well as in IT, engineering, secretarial and cleaning services.

The Newmarket facility centre has been designed in collaboration with the medical and clinical oncologists who will treat patients there. It will provide a wide range of services, including diagnostics, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other wellness support services and treatment for people with many different types of cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, bowel, brain, head and neck, and neurological.

“The new centre will give people within East Anglia the opportunity to receive fast and easy access to the very best cancer care, close to home,” said Aldo Rolfo, GenesisCare General Manager.
