Jeremy Hunt has affirmed his support for an appeal to raise £2 million towards the construction of a world-class NHS Urology Centre at the Royal Surrey County Hospital.
Everyone who buys a brick for £10 will have their name recorded in a book of appreciation in the new centre reception. BXTAccelyon will be donating £250 towards the project.
The new urology centre will transform the patient experience at the Royal Surrey for men, women and children.
Professor Stephen Langley, clinical director of urology, said: “Our status as a Centre of Excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer will be further enhanced by this exceptional new facility.
“It is already attracting very high calibre personnel who want to be part of the pioneering team at Guilford. We are one of the largest brachytherapy treatment centres in the world and certainly the largest in the UK.”
The new centre will enable Professor Langley’s team to treat up to eight patients per day on a day-case basis using a new more rapid 4D brachytherapy technique, which was developed at the Royal Surrey and is being adopted at many centres around the world.
