Our Story

We are extremely proud of our humble beginnings.

LOC was set up by four leading cancer specialists to provide outstanding patient care and cutting-edge treatments, delivered according to the standards of best practice recognised around the world.

Over the years we have continually expanded our facilities and services to meet the growing needs of our patients, consultants and ever evolving treatment options. Originating as a single clinic, we have grown in size, experience and stature and are proud to say that the LOC now offers our services at six out-patient centres across London and one in Manchester.

While we continue to lead in the development of cancer care, there are a number of things that remain core to the LOC and what makes us so different.
