Enhancing the wellbeing and recovery of patients in the best environment

We know that a welcoming, dignified and peaceful patient environments can significantly enhance the physical health and emotional wellbeing of The Royal Marsden’s patients and their families. 

We fund the building of new, world-class facilities and the refurbishment of existing ones to the highest possible standards. We also increase capacity to allow the hospital’s specialist staff to see more patients, and provide even better care.

Designing around patients needs 

The hospital has one of the largest blood cancer research portfolios in the country, recently the Charity funded the refurbishment of the Bud Flanagan wards where many of the patients with blood cancer are treated. Ensuring the facilities are as modern and comfortable as possible for patients, their families, and our staff working on the unit.

The Oak Centre for Children and Young People which was also funded by supporters of the Charity, was specifically designed around the needs of young patients and their families with many contributing to the layout of the centre.

I am so grateful to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity for the support they provide to the hospital. The Royal Marsden provides an environment that you won’t find in any other NHS hospital. It’s full of love, compassion and hope – it really is a magical place.
