Oak Cancer Centre public consultation

Every day, nearly 1,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. One in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives. At The Royal Marsden, we give hope to our patients, providing access to the very latest research and treatments.  

Start: 10:00, 19 March 2019

End: 10:00, 26 March 2019

Event: Workshop

But some of the buildings and infrastructure at our Sutton hospital date from the 1960s. This is hindering our ability to confront some of the most pressing challenges in cancer research, diagnosis and treatment. 

We will shortly be submitting a planning application to the London Borough of Sutton for a new building, the Oak Cancer Centre (OCC). The new building is being designed to encourage collaboration between researchers, who are currently spread out around the hospital, to speed up the translation of our world-leading research into treatments that can improve and save people’s lives. Our core patient areas need updating if we are going to be able to offer the best treatment and care for our patients in the future, and we need a new Rapid Diagnostic Centre to help us increase the number of cancer patients we diagnose at an early stage, when treatment is more likely to be successful.  

We are keen to involve members of the public, staff and patients with the planning process and for your views to be heard while the proposals are being finalised.   
    
The draft plans and details of the new OCC are available for you to review below.
