Exeter Oncology Centre
The Exeter Oncology Centre is home to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Wonford)'s oncology outpatient clinics and our radiotherapy department.
The centre works closely with the hospital's day case chemotherapy department, haematology services and Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Wonford)'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.

Park and Ride
There is a Park and Ride bus service from the Sowton Park and Ride site (EX2 5GL), which is situated just off the M5 (Junction 30) to the east of the city. See the map below.
The buses go directly to the Wonford site, stopping at the Peninsula Medical School (RILD) and the Hospital's main entrance. The buses also stop at the Digby Park and Ride site, which is for staff only.
The Park and Ride is one of the most cost-effective forms of transport, with an adult return costing £2 (£1.50 single) and a child return costing £1 (80p single).
A return ticket is only £1.50 for all English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) pass holders.
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.
