Our state-of-the-art centre means
health professionals providing expert care

visits from cancer patients each year
to make it a reality
A hub for innovation and discovery
The new centre will bring together over 300 of our clinical researchers alongside our patients, in one building, for the first time. Designed to nurture collaboration at every level, it will transform the way we work.
Earlier diagnosis for more cancers
Diagnosing cancer at an early stage saves lives. With a unit dedicated to detecting many different cancers, our new centre will not only help more people receive an early diagnosis, it will help our researchers find new and faster ways to identify the disease.
There for every person who needs us
Cancer incidence is increasing, but when the Oak Cancer Centre opens in 2021, we’ll be able to see thousands more patients every year. Our clinical capacity will grow by at least 40%, giving more people access to our clinical trials programme and the newest treatment options.
The best possible patient environment
When they’re at their most vulnerable, the new centre will support our patients’ wellbeing, dignity and privacy to make their experience as positive as it can be. We want to create a comfortable and modern patient environment.

We have the experience and expertise, with some of the greatest minds in cancer research and treatment working here. But we don’t have the infrastructure we need.
This centre will enable us to treat more people in a facility that has been designed to enhance their world-class care.
