Building a new beginning for Cancer treatment at the RUH
One in three people are affected by cancer. Every day lives are changed forever by this disease, which indiscriminately alters the futures of people everywhere. Inspired by the design and results of the Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care, and the UCLH Cancer Centre which focus on an individualised and holistic approach to the treatment of cancer patients, we are building what we believe will be the best cancer centre for a district general hospital in the UK. This cancer centre will be a state of the art building, taking a holistic approach that is designed to produce a highly beneficial healing environment for patients and their families.
Changing the shape of cancer patients’ futures comes at a price – and within a year of launching the Campaign the target was reached and has been extend to £8.5m enhancing what is possible even further, bringing the estimated total cost of the cancer centre to £23.5 million.
