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

Due to the increasing numbers of cases of coronavirus across the UK, we have suspended all visiting to The Royal Marsden apart from specific circumstances. Read here for more information.

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.
