Kidney cancer treatments

Share this page:

In this section of the website you will find information about the treatments available for kidney cancer. In particular, we explain the NHS policies governing access to cancer treatments and how to access treatments that are not routinely available in NHS hospitals. There are different and complex funding policies in place, depending upon whether you live in England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland. Here we explain how they work.

For more detailed information about these treatments, please see our Essential guides to kidney cancer.
