Coronavirus (COVID-19): visiting The Royal Marsden suspended

Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest: Visiting The Royal Marsden is still suspended, but we want to reassure our patients, their families and anyone worried about cancer during this difficult time that we are still delivering treatment - the hospital is open. Please see more information here about how we are keeping everyone safe.

Other infections

As well as reducing the risks from MRSA and C difficile, the precautions we have in place will reduce the risk from other infections as well.

Occasionally even stronger precautions are needed. People whose immune systems have been particularly badly affected by their disease or treatment will be nursed in a single room in ‘protective isolation’ in order to reduce contact with infectious microorganisms.
