Genesis Care

Genesis Care provides world-class cancer care – from symptoms to survivorship. It is a team of 5000 highly trained healthcare professionals and support staff across the UK, Australia, Spain and the US. Genesis Care designs and delivers innovative treatments and care for people with every type of cancer.


In common with The Amara Clinic, Genesis care believes care should be focused on you, the individual, not the condition. They believe care should be available when and where you need it most and it should be designed to help give you the best life outcomes possible.

Genesis Care works together as expert teams to develop a detailed understanding of your needs, so they can design the right care plan tailored to you. The team at Genesis Care says:

‘If you or a loved one is affected by cancer, we know it can feel overwhelming trying to work out what your options are and where to go to get the best treatments from specialists with the right expertise.

‘At Genesis Care, we’re the UK’s leading private cancer care provider, and each year we provide world-class cancer treatment to thousands of patients at our specialist centres. We’re renowned for the excellent care we provide and we’re proud to be rated in the top 1% of healthcare providers worldwide for patient satisfaction.

‘We understand what it takes to get the best possible outcome following a cancer diagnosis - and we go a little further to provide it.’
