GUYS CANCER TREATMENT CENTRE, LONDON SE1
The private patients wing in the Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital occupies the top four floors and is designed to offer the latest innovations and treatments including minimally invasive surgery to aid fast recovery. It is technologically advanced with such inclusions as Europe's first integrated robotics theatre that facilitates more minimally invasive procedures and is patient focussed, projecting a calm reassurance through its design aimed at helping those in recovery to feel the best they can. Natural light is incorporated into the operating theatres and these may be considered a model for other such urban healthcare schemes. Great feedback has been received from both clinicians and patients: ‘not just first class for the UK, but internationally’ and an ‘Outstanding’ rating was achieved in the facility’s Care Quality Commission registration.
