About this service

Our modern radiotherapy department is based in the Sunrise Centre at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. We see around 2,000 new patients each year and deliver more than 1,800 courses of radiotherapy. We don’t have a waiting list, so clinics are often extremely busy.


We run clinics from 9am until 5pm and radiotherapy from 8am to 5pm. We provide an on-call service at the weekends and on bank holidays.
