The Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust neuro-oncology unit at Charing Cross Hospital serves patients with brain tumours and spinal tumours from across northwest London, extending west to Windsor and further north to Luton and Watford. We also attract referrals from around the country, especially for specialised services, including skull-base and pituitary work.

We are one of only two centres in London offering comprehensive brain tumour diagnosis and treatment from one location.

Conditions and treatments

We treat brain and spinal tumours. We treat the full range of adult brain tumours, including glioblastoma, low grade gliomas, ependymoma and medulloblastoma, pituitary tumours and skull base tumours, including meningioma, as well as rarer brain and spinal tumours.

The management of brain and spinal tumours requires a complex, multidisciplinary approach, involving the use of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy where appropriate. We offer imaging, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, psychosocial support and palliative care.
