The Rory the Robot Appeal

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Charitable Fund launched the £1million Rory the Robot fundraising appeal in March 2014. Since then around £320,000 has been raised towards the cost of a state of the art da Vinci robotic surgical system.

The system itself will primarily be used to treat patients with prostate cancer but has the potential to be utilised by other surgical teams in the future.

In Worcestershire alone there are between 125 to 150 radical prostate cancer operations carried out each year.

Approximately 2,500 men in the region are surviving prostate cancer at any one time.

Prostate cancer unfortunately claims the life of one man every hour and will be the most common cancer by 2030.
