A state-of-the-art cancer care facility in Guildford has reached practical completion. Representatives from Prime plc, VINCI Building and Assura plc gathered to mark the milestone, celebrating a major step forward in advancing healthcare in the region.
Spanning 24,300 sq. ft, the £30.5 million centre will offer highly advanced oncology treatments and patients with cancer will have access to the latest treatment options. These include highly targeted radiotherapy using a Magnetic Resonance Image Linear Accelerator (MR Linac), and Theranostics, an innovative and personalised treatment that combines diagnostic imaging and radionuclide therapy to seek and destroy advanced cancers without damaging healthy tissue.
In addition to offering advanced cancer treatments to private patients, the centre will offer some NHS patients access to technology not currently available on the NHS.
Phil Holland, Chief Investment Officer at Prime, said: “This project has been a testament to the collaborative efforts of our dedicated team, committed to constructing a world-class facility that will make a meaningful difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
This centre stands as a beacon of hope, offering advanced medical care and cutting-edge technologies. Our vision for a patient-centric approach to healthcare has come to fruition, and we are confident that this facility will serve as a cornerstone in the fight against cancer, fostering healing, resilience and a brighter future for all those affected by this challenging journey.”
Jason Griffiths, VINCI Building’s Regional Director, said: “VINCI Building are delighted to have successfully delivered the Guildford Cancer Centre and we are so proud to have been a part of the scheme.
“The delivery of this amazing project has been the culmination of great teamwork and vision, and this facility will change the lives of so many people in Surrey.”
Alastair Barlow, Senior Development Manager at Assura, said: “We have been delighted to work on this project and are very proud to see it reach completion. Facilities like this really do make a difference to people’s lives especially with the state-of-the-art technology and treatments that will be on offer from this centre.
“It takes a lot of work from everyone involved to deliver a project as big as this and it will be fantastic to see it open to patients next year.”
The installation of advanced medical equipment is now reaching final stages and the grand opening is scheduled for early 2024.
