The Exeter Oncology Centre is home to the Royal Devon and Exeter's oncology outpatient clinics and our radiotherapy department.

The centre works closely with the hospital's day case chemotherapy department, haematology services and the RD&E's dedicated oncology ward.

Our team of Medical and Clinical Oncologists, responsible for prescribing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, are based at the centre.

More about us

Exeter Oncology Centre is home to many high-tech scanning equipment and machines, used to deliver our radiotherapy service.

Radiotherapy is a treatment that uses high energy radiation to treat both cancerous and non-cancerous conditions.

Here at the centre, we have close links to F.O.R.C.E. (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre in Exeter). This is a local charity which provides extensive physical, psychological and practical support services for our patients, as well as supporting innovation in clinical services.

For more information please visit our Cancer Clinical Services pages.

Opening times

The Oncology Centre is open from 8.30am to 6pm.

On occasion the radiotherapy service operates up to 8pm.

The wards and other accessible areas are listed in alphabetical order. Next to each ward/area is a coloured circle with a letter in it, indicating which level and where the ward/area is. You will also find a site map near each of the hospital entrances.

Public transport 

The hospital is easily accessible using public transport and other sustainable means of travel. 

We are well served by local bus routes, from across Devon. A number of services stop at the hospital, whereas others require a connection with a local bus route from Exeter City Centre.

Both the main Exeter train stations, St Davids and Exeter Central, are around three miles from the hospital and are served by buses that travel directly to our site.

A return ticket is only £1.50 for all English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) pass holders.
