Meet Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a specialist tertiary cancer centre, and is the lead centre for all cancer patients in Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, serving a total population of 1.2 million.
Cancer services are based at the St Luke’s Cancer Centre, which is recognised as a leading urology centre locally, nationally and internationally (particularly in prostate brachytherapy). The centre is focussed on innovation and the introduction of minimally invasive treatments. It has recently introduced brachytherapy, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, cryotherapy and high-intensity focused ultrasound.
Around 200 men a year are diagnosed with prostate cancer within the Trust, with around 4,000 accessing follow-up treatment annually.
