At GenesisCare, we believe in taking care of you, not just treating your cancer.

Our team of specialist doctors and health professionals are committed to supporting you at all stages of your cancer experience.

Your team will consist of:

  • radiation oncologists

  • medical physicists
  • radiation oncology nurses
  • patient services team

“No wait” consultations

We know how important it is for you to see a radiation oncologist, and receive treatment as soon as possible, following your diagnosis.

That’s why we pride ourselves on offering “no wait” consultations with our radiation oncologists that are aligned with your referring doctors' recommendations.

Most of the time, you’ll see a specialist on the same day, or next day, depending on your individual requirements and referrals.

Rapid access to treatments

We offer rapid access to high quality, personalised cancer treatments and holistic care, to achieve the best possible result for you.

Locations everywhere

We understand radiation therapy affects your family and friends, too. Many people have treatment over three to five weeks, and for longer courses, up to eight or nine weeks. Our strong local presence helps minimise the distance you need to travel – and, it lessens the burden of your daily treatment sessions.

We’re committed to improving access to cancer treatment for anyone, anywhere.

Free medical evaluations

As part of our commitment to providing you with best-practice care, you’ll receive regular medical evaluations with your radiation oncologist during your treatment course at no additional cost.

As well as these evaluations, our nurses are always available to help you with any concerns or questions during your treatment.

WHAT IS RADIATION THERAPY?
Radiation therapy uses radiation to kill or damage cancerous (abnormal) cells and stop them from growing and multiplying.

It is one of the best-established, most effective and well tolerated therapies for treating almost all cancers, extending lives, and reducing suffering.

By placing radioactive material inside the body – this is known as brachytherapy

RADIATION THERAPY EXTERNAL BEAM
External beam radiation therapy, the radiation oncology team uses a machine called a linear accelerator, or linac.

A linac uses electricity to form a stream of fast-moving subatomic (electron) particles. This creates high-energy radiation that is used to kill cancerous cells.

STEREOTACTIC (SABR, SRS, GAMMA)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) delivers high doses of radiation with sub millimetre precision positioning. It is often used to treat small tumours with well-defined edges.

It is most commonly used to treat primary brain or spinal tumours – as well as secondary brain tumours.

BRACHYTHERAPY
Brachytherapy involves radiation delivered from a tiny source implanted directly into or next to the tumour.

These sources produce gamma-rays, which have the same effect on cancer cells as X-rays.
