About us

Our cutting-edge cancer services are mainly provided at the South West Wales Cancer Centre at Singleton Hospital, Swansea.

However, people living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis may also be treated at Morriston and Neath Port Talbot hospitals.

Most people are treated as out patients, but some require in-patient treatment.
