Fundraising group, Friends of Royal Surrey Charity is asking the local community to support its Cancer and Surgical Innovation Campaign by attending a Quiz and Fish & Chip supper at St Nicolas Church Rooms,  Church Lane, Cranleigh, Surrey, GU6 8AR on 12th April at 7pm,  a bar and raffle will be available. We are delighted that Lynn Murray & Co Solicitors  and  Chantries and Pewleys have kindly sponsored this event. 

This ambitious and game-changing development will see Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust, who supports a population of around 3 million, build upon its world class services in the fields of traditional and robotic surgery, enhance its theatre capacity and improve patient experiences and outcomes throughout Surrey and the South East.  

Work has already started on the Royal Surrey’s brand new Cancer and Surgical Innovation Centre and is expected to be completed at the end of 2025. Providing state-of-the-art facilities, it will house six new operating theatres and help to build on Royal Surrey’s world-class services in robotic and non-robotic surgery.

The benefits of this project are substantial and include:
– Treating 7,000 more patients every year, including those with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis.
– The new centre will dramatically improve patient experience.
– Waiting times will reduce, leading to better outcomes and patients will be able to receive all the care they need in one highly specialised setting.
– As a centre for innovation and technology, the new facility will support research, training and education for future surgical specialists.
– The new centre will bring together world-leading surgical experts enabling them to share knowledge and ideas to speed up the development of new surgical techniques and practices.
– Royal Surrey is already one of the UK’s leading NHS providers of robotic surgery and will be looking to increase the number of surgical robots to be used.

Chief Executive of NHS Foundation Trust, Louise Stead said: “We are very excited to have started work on our new Cancer and Surgical Innovation Centre which will become one of Europe’s leading surgical centres.  I am hugely proud of everyone involved in this project and look forward to seeing it all come together over the next year or so.”

The new facility, which will replace Royal Surrey’s aging Surgical Short Stay Unit, will be made up of several modular buildings.
