Cancer Care Close to Home

Mat

I live out of town. Can I get treatment closer to home?

Whenever possible, LRCP works closely with regional partners to bring treatments closer to your home. The first visit with your Oncologist will be in London so that a treatment plan can be made.

If you are having chemotherapy, your first treatment will be given in London. If there are no problems, you may be able to have other treatments at a clinic closer to your home. Not all treatments can be done in community cancer clinics. If you do get your chemotherapy closer to home, your Oncologist will continue to follow your treatment and will work closely with the care team in your community.

Regional Partners provide chemotherapy in: Chatham, Owen Sound, Sarnia, St. Thomas, Stratford, Wingham, and Woodstock.

All radiation therapy is performed at LRCP. There are 9 radiation units that operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. These units are located on Level 1 of LRCP. If you live more than 40 km from London, you may want to stay at Residence Inn .
