Accredited Cancer Centre

Every year our urology team performs many complex operations for the local population of Worcestershire. Through this work we are recognised as a 'urology cancer centre'. The implementation of robotic assisted surgery is essential to ensuring that our cancer centre status is maintained for the future. This will mean that we can carry on performing a full repertoire of urological procedures for all of our patients. With the acquisition of a surgical robot we will also be able to attract the very best to come and join our department.

A number of hospitals in the UK now offer robotic assisted surgery (RAS) to improve pateints' experience of treatment for prostate cancer. Patients from Worcestershire who choose RAS often have to travel long distances to other units for their surgery. We want to provide RAS for patients in Worcestershire - much closer to their homes and loved ones.
