The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (BWoSCC)

The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre is the lead centre for the delivery of non-surgical cancer care for the West of Scotland.

Serving a population of 2.6m, the centre has clinical links with 16 hospitals in Glasgow and other health board areas.

The Beatson is Scotland's largest cancer centre and the second largest in the UK. As a result, the workload is varied: each year, the Beatson team sees more than 8,000 new patients, and more than 20,000 courses of chemotherapy and around 6,500 courses of radiotherapy are administered.

Waiting times for radical treatment are among the lowest in the UK.

An internationally renowned teaching centre, the Beatson incorporates the academic units of Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Translational Research and Palliative Care.
