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.

Getting Involved: for patients and the public

Any patient, carer or member of the public can become more involved or engaged with the work of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. 

The Royal Marsden is an NHS Foundation Trust, meaning it is part of the NHS but independent from the Department of Health and directly accountable to its local community. We are committed to ensuring our patients have the best experience and they can be involved and engaged in our work through many ways. Anyone who would like to help and have a voice, is welcome.
