The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity is raising £70 million for the Oak Cancer Centre. Named in recognition of Oak Foundation which has donated £25 million, the centre will replace some of the outdated facilities in the Sutton hospital with carefully designed modern spaces.
The centre will bring together over 400 researchers who are currently dispersed across the site, in areas designed to encourage collaboration and help speed up the development of new treatments, and will house a state of the art Rapid Diagnostic Centre to provide faster and earlier diagnosis for more people, helping to save lives by diagnosing cancer earlier when treatment is more likely to be successful
