Rutherford Direct Cancer Care – an affordable membership plan that pays for the cost of comprehensive cancer treatment.

We are the new generation of private healthcare, the first of its kind in the UK - offering innovative access to the very latest medical technologies, procedures and therapies available when you or a family member need it most.

No other plan offers direct access to a leading cancer treatment network. With cancer now affecting 1 in 2 people – the likelihood of you or someone in your family now facing the disease is at its highest ever rate. We know that health comes first, which is why our membership plan recognises that.

  • We provide peace of mind to your everyday
  • Prepare for the worst, before it has happened

Offering pioneering cancer treatment for family members

Lessen the impact of worry and fear if diagnosed

Advanced treatments include Proton Beam Therapy, Immunotherapy and a full range of conventional treatments and procedures. With an independent discretionary panel responsible for selecting the best treatment for you, no stone is left unturned.

Pay the price of a couple of coffees or a good book now, not the price of worry later.

Treatment, support and aftercare from just £6.91 per week.

Comprehensive care and benefits

We’re here, every step of the way...

Following authorisation for treatment, our membership services team organise and pay the costs of any treatment and other hospital, clinical (including surgical) charges.

Additionally, travel and hotel accommodation costs (and those of a companion) are met. Members are also provided with transfer costs to and from their hotel to the Centre and even a daily cash allowance to cover any incidentals. On discharge, a generous allowance is available for medications that may be required following treatment.

Depending on the choice of plan (Standard or Comprehensive), members are covered for up to £500,000 or a very comforting £1 million, per member, per year.

How does the Rutherford treatment pathway work?

Our simple process provides straightforward access to world-class treatment

1. Diagnosis
2. Expert appointment
3. Treatment pathway

4. Start of treatment

If a member is diagnosed with cancer, we provide access to pioneering cancer treatments at a leading, recommended facility under the care of consultant oncologists who are specialists in their field.


The membership benefits team can be contacted after a formal diagnosis from a GP referred specialist has been obtained.


An expert appointment is arranged by a Rutherford consultant.


On confirmation of the correct diagnosis, a treatment plan and pathway is produced and approved by a discretionary panel of field leading experts.


Dates for treatment are agreed with our Members Benefits Team. Travel and necessary hotel stays are then booked and paid.

Individual & family membership is open today.

Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.
