Bupa recruits GenesisCare to expand its cancer units

Private cancer care provider GenesisCare has signed a new four-year agreement with Bupa which will see them working to expand radiotherapy and systemic therapy services for the insurer’s customers. 

The new contract prioritises a range of initiatives including the further development and expansion of Bupa’s Cancer Specialist Centres network, set up in 2019 to help customers get a faster diagnosis and treatment at earlier stages. 

Bupa’s specialist centres later expanded to include bowel and prostate cancer. 

Bupa UK Insur­ance chief exec­utive Alex Perry said: ‘Cancer cases are on the rise in the UK. It’s estimated that by 2030, around 4m people will be living with the disease. 

‘It’s vital that we continue innovating with our hospital partners to deliver life-changing improvements in cancer care through the further development of our Specialist Centres network.’
