World Cancer Day – 4 February 2021

Dyson Cancer Centre

Today is World Cancer Day, an important day for us to highlight the positive impact our supporters are making for our patients and their families.

Since the launch of our RUH Cancer Care Campaign close to £10 million has been raised towards the Dyson Cancer Centre. This is truly astonishing and on World Cancer Day it’s a great opportunity to share with you the progress of the cancer centre build.

It’s thanks to your support that the Royal United Hospitals Bath will have a unique Cancer Centre built to serve people in our local communities who are living with cancer. The Dyson Cancer Centre will help transform the care to patients and their families by bringing the majority of the RUH’s cancer services together under one roof in a nurturing and therapeutic environment.

Because of the huge amount of fundraising support we have received for this project we are delighted to share the following news:

  • £9.8million has been raised so far for the Dyson Cancer Centre
  • Demolition work is well underway for building the new centre
  • Over the next 12 months we aim to raise £197,000 to finish off our cancer campaign to ensure the new centre is truly special in its design, facilities and equipment.

 

“It is really exciting to see the building work progressing. The new centre is so important for our patients, especially as COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of having a safe, spacious and modern environment for cancer treatments.”

Professor Mark Beresford, Consultant Oncologist and Clinical Lead for Oncology and Haematology at the Royal United Hospitals Bath
