Facilities include an out patient unit with eight clinical rooms. There are three modern radiotherapy machines that are able to give radiotherapy to different depths and that can be accurately shaped using lead leaves (reducing risk of side effects). The Sunrise Centre has its own CT scanner which is used to plan radiotherapy treatments accurately, as well as offices/meeting rooms. The nearby Headland Unit is a chemotherapy suite (where out patient chemotherapy is given) and where some clinical procedures are performed.

Out of hours advice for patients in Cornwall undergoing cancer treatments is also available when required. For patients on chemotherapy or immunotherapy, call 07833 057447 or for other treatments contact Lowen ward through the hospital switchboard on 01872 250000.
